A Chilly Tulip Angelique

Pin It

I brought my Angelique tulip bulbs indoors late last summer, kept them in a paper bag in the vegetable crisper of the refrigerator, and planted them in late February. Now they've begun to bloom and they're not bad looking. My experience with tulips has always been that they look beautiful the first year but then it's all downhill after that; they never acheive that first-year beauty again. Maybe a winter's worth of deep chill is what the doctor ordered.

Orange Mystery Flower

Pin It

Does anyone out there know what this is?
Edit, 4-18-08: As can be seen in the comments section below, my friend Anne from across the pond has identified this intensly orange-flowered plant as a helianthemum. Thanks Anne!

Spring Garden Series #3 - Three Sisters Daffodils

Pin It

Aren't they just stunning? Could the sky be more blue? Could a photo be more perfect? Well ... probably, but this comes awfully close.
