First Tulip. We took our first Spring walk to Morges yesterday. The tulips weren't quite out yet, but a few lone renegades were making their appearance.
First Bed of Tulips. The peonies weren't even fully out, but this bed of tulips seemed to be in a hurry to enjoy the early spring! I'm not a gardener, so I always wondered why they planted peonies on top of tulip bulbs in the fall. I assumed it was for protecting the bulbs from frost. Not so. I couldn't find anything on the Internet to suggest any other reason than that peonies are just pretty to plant along side tulips!
This seems to be a Griegii tulip, native to Turkestan. They are short with large blooms and tend to bloom very early. They're only second to bloom after the water lily tulip. Now it makes sense to see this bed blooming ahead of the others.
First Scoop of Summer Ice Cream. Is it wrong to spoil a cracker and a criminal?
