Today's Flowers

There were tulips at the flower show. And a gnome.

Tulips come in so many colours,

and shapes.

The tulips in the gardens are about four inches high now.

Tulips are the queens of all spring flowers. They are just hard to beat. I just love these. The pointy ones next to last are just so gorgeous and the gnome is cute looking up like that.

Your tulips are wonderful! Agree with Tarolino; they are the queen of spring flowers!

You captured them so well!

Thanks for the info abt forsythia Judy. It hardly ever gets more than tops -20 (centigrades here) and even that for quite shorts spells of time. I think this winter -15 was the coldest so it could very well be that forsythia would suit our climate then. I have to start looking into it.

Thank you so much for identifying the scilla on my post! I am so happy when I learn the names of local flowers.

Love the tulips, especially the purple next to yellows and the open pinkish purple one, second to bottom.

Splendid pictures of classy tulips.
I am not up to date with tulips anymore as they do not grow in my garden, but what I have seen so far they are getting more exotic looking every year.

The second picture is amazing. Come to think of it, it looks like a rooster's feathers. He he ... I'm right, am I not?
