Tulips are special!

I love tulips! The only "bad" thing about tulips is that they don't bloom for the entire gardening season!

I was in Pella, home of Tulip Time recently and saw some gorgeous tulips. Due to our warm winter and early spring, the tulips were at their peak when I visited last week. Enjoy!

Shape and color, what's not to like?

Ranunculus? Nope, it's a tulip!

Posing in front of a tulip display in the park. Note the lovely fountain behind me.

It's all about COLOR here!

This reminds me of a peony.

Tulips blend well with hostas, don't you agree?

Love these lavender and white tulips at Brinkhoff Park

The fringey red tulips are stunners.

I was taken by these stunning two-toned tulips. I just couldn't stop taking pictures of them!

Love this little vignette in front of a store in Pella
