I have to say that this is turning out to be a great spring for flowers. The temperatures are staying cool so the flowers are opening slowly and lasting a long time.
In this set of photos there are some tulips which have just started to bloom. I wish I knew the name of the two-tone one – the colors are the most amazing I’ve ever seen in a tulip and the close up looks like something you’d see in a bulb catalog! Also there are two different varieties of asian pear in the pictures. One of them has double blooms and almost looks like a rose.
It’s so nice to see nature starting to burst out in its spring finery! (Click on any of the photos to enlarge them)
