"Tulipa Tarda" sniffs

This is one bright and cheery tulip
 that has gotten my attention
 for the passed four springs.
 The perkiness and joy they exhibit
 seems to mirror my view on my everyday life.
 It may sound corny but that's how I feel!
Tulipa Tarda, a species tulip that multiplies like mad and
I think you should consider for your spring garden.
You won't be disappointed with these little gems!

  7. Oh, what beautiful flowers you have there Sophie! We tried the daffodils here in SC, but it just doesn't get cold enough in the winter for bulbs, apparently. But we'll just come over here to your blog and enjoy yours!

  10. I can't believe how dense they are! We have exactly 1 tulip blooming, lol!

    They should name it "Sophie" like they name roses.

  15. Hi Y'all,

    They sure are pretty. Maybe I can find some and plant them in the mountains. Unfortunately it's summer here and too late to plant in the mountains too. I'll check them out for next year.

  17. What a colorful and beautiful post! I love your tulips. Alas, I don't think that they'll work here due to our climate and the many animals who love to eat tulip bulbs. But, I can enjoy them from afar by reading your blog!

    You did a great job of photographing them. The colors are so vibrant and the depth of field is perfect.

    ps-is it difficult to put your name on your photos! We keep thinking that it would be a good idea for us to do the same but Murray's Mom is terrible with technology! Is it simple to do?
