Our tulips put on quite a show this Spring. One of the new tulips for this year was Halley's Comet, a cheery red and yellow bicolor.

Halley's Comet is a perfect name for this beauty, George. It looks like a shooting star with those beautiful colors.
Have a delightful day :)

I think it interesting that all the flowers are putting on such vibrant shows! I think they liked being buried by the snow.

Another beauty in your garden, George! Do you find you have to plant new tulips every few years because they peter out?

Kay said...

Tulips are some of my favorite flowers. It is some of my favorite studies in theology as well.
