Red and White Tulip Buds

Red and White Tulip Buds

I have a busy day planned so here is another archive shot of some red and white Tulips. I am not sure where or when I shot this. Tulips are always a special flower to me. You really can’t plant them here in Connecticut unless you have a fenced in area because of the deer. They seem to really relish the foliage and buds.

Thanks to all the people that have been visiting lately. I hope to go to the Orchid Show at the NYBG on Sunday so starting next week there should be some fresh flower shots here. It gets to be a little tough this time of year to keep with the general idea of this blog, which was to be posting pictures I shot with in a week of two of the post. I can’t wait to get back to doing that.

Thanks for all of the nice shots, even if they were not recent, they are a pleasure. We consider tulips an annual here because of the heat, but there are a few culitvars and species that will repeat.

What a beautiful photo! The Pheasant's Eye Narcissus is very nice too.

Have a nice weekend :)

The tulips are beautiful. I've never been to an orchid show so I would be interested to know what's it like.

nessa, marie and tracy, thanks for leaving a comment.

les and vanilla, there are only a few tulips I consider reliably perennial. Darwin tulips are one. You might try some Botanical or species tulips they are not as showy but seem to come back every year.

av8, I love any kind of plant show ;)
I have been to a couple of different Orchid shows and always find them worth attending. Orchid growers are a special bunch.

glenn, thanks for stopping by. I have heard you have had a bad winter out there. Are sick of plowing snow yet?

great photography , and must admit after reading your blog about burning cd's i feel for you as I know how time consuming it can be.

Must admit I believe Google is going to follow Microsofts lead in the next 3 months by providing external storage and I think I am going to go that way instead of buying an external drive
