Garden Discovery

I swear I don’t remember planting these tulips last fall. Who else would have planted them? It must have been me. I guess I don’t remember them looking this pretty on the packaging.

I love the two-tone colors and the lily shape when they are open. Even the leaves are variegated.

Look at what happens to them at dusk.

And then the next day, they open up and shine again.

That is one of the many wonderful things I love about spring, discovering treasures in our gardens.

  • Maybe the tulip fairies came in the middle of the night…

  • Lovely surprise! Tulips are so pretty…

  • Tulips are one of my very favorite flowers šŸ™‚

  • Lol – I often have things pop up in the garden which I know that I’ve not planted – we have had some beautiful flower surprises. Bulbs though – hmmm, I don’t know about that one unless they had been dormant for a couple of years (do bulbs do that??) I don’t know :0)

    They are really pretty tulips though so whether you planted them or they are a gift from mysterious Mother Nature aren’t they lovely!

    I love flowers that go to sleep on a night time and reawaken the next day. Enjoy your tulips and all that the garden will bring in the coming months.

  • Lol – I often have things pop up in the garden which I know I haven’t planted there. We have had some beautiful surprise flowers over the years. Maybe they have been dormant for a couple of years (do bulbs do that? – I don’t know lol)

    But whether you planted them or they are a gift from mysterious Mother Nature they are beautiful. I love flowers that go to sleep on a night time and reawaken the next day.

    Hope you get lots more lovely surprises in your garden over the coming months.

  • You never know what you got when Spring comes around. Little things just pop up thru the earth and you never know what it is until it blooms. Just wonderful.

  • Squirrels are known to dig things up and replant them elsewhere. Hope your neighbors aren’t missing that beautiful flower!!

  • What beautiful Tulips Terri! One of my favourite flowers – they are so pretty. Enjoy your spring weather.

  • They’re so gorgeous!

  • Hello Terri, Love those tulips. I never knew they opened and closed like that. Twice last week I dug up the same daffodil bulb while I was planting some stocks and snapdragons. They are tough so I expect it will bloom. I agree with your Mum about having a light coloured material inside the bags/clutches. Why is it so dark in there same thing happens with my wallet. Have a great day.

  • Tulips are such gorgeous flowers! Must be such a pleasent supprise to find them in your lovely garden! Beautiful photos! Hope you weekend was fun! Wishing you a lovely merry happy week ahead! Love to you!

  • Such pretty tulips, it’s always fun when the flowers start budding out in springtime.

  • I didn’t know there was a tulip that opened and closed. What a nice surprise in your garden!

  • SO pretty! We’re playing this game all around our home-we moved in in August when most things had already closed up or disappeared for the winter. We’ve found lilies, irises, azaleas, and various other flowers that I cannot identify (husband says it’s a “rhode-something”). At any rate, beautiful tulips-enjoy them!

  • YWow those tulips are amazing. I love the colors.I may just add them to my plant list for when I move. šŸ™‚
