Tuesday’s Tulips


Mom popped over the other day and gave me some lovely Tulips from her garden . See, my in laws live next door and mom loves to garden as well  . I only have a few Tulips and are planning on planting more this season . I am trying to get a lot of different bulbs so that I can have flowers for spring summer and fall  and they will come up every year and that way I spend less on buying flowers as they are getting expensive  and only buy for my planters ! In the future I would like to grow my own from seed for my planters but I need a little green house and or an indoor grow rack and lamp system ! Working on either or both lol !


               These are in our kitchen on the island ! I can smell them every time I walk past them.  

                             I  think the other flowers with them are a hybrid daffodil !


                            These are in our living room on a bench with my indoor plants !

    I just love flowers freshly cut in the house and from moms or my own garden is even better !

          The weather here has been strange , it is rainy , cold and very windy . I hope it gets better soon, I am going nuts here being cooped up indoors !

                                     Until next time hope you all have a good day !

I love tulips yet they don't grow well here so I'll enjoy yours!

Strange weather for sure. It got down in the 40's here last night. At the end of April in Florida... now that's unusual!

Have a great day and I hope you're able to get outside soon!

You are right nothing is like the having real flowers in the house.
I use faux as well. Having flowes come up in the yard every year is great too.

What pretty tulips, they look like they have quite a long time left to bloom.
I started planting perennials several years ago, not only do they grace us with flowers, year after year, and save money buying the annuals, but they get me in the mood each Spring to dig in the cold dirt ;)

Hi Elaine...Oh I love that Daffodil it is gorgeous...I wish these kinds of flowers lasted longer then they do so it is nice to have them where you can see them all day!!
Nice to have family to share with you!!

What a thoughtful gift of tulips, they are just lovely! I want to also do tulip bulbs for next year because like you I love having colors year after year--I also don't do much with annuals for the same reason Jo (Brit in Tennessee) doesn't.

The flowers are beautiful. I don't think tulips grow well in south Texas.
