Life's A Cabernet Tulip



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.)

We've been enjoying the tulips in our yard this year -- they've put on quite a show. The tulip above is one of the new ones in our yard this year -- Life's a Cabernet. I have no idea how it got that name, but it is pretty.

Red tulips are so perky and cheerful. This is such a pretty shade of red.

And here I thought Cabernet Sauvignon came from grapes.

I've seen your comments on so many of the blogs I follow, I just had to stop by -- I'm glad I did. I think your photos are remarkable! I'm afraid to ask about the stag... Kathy
