Flower power–wow!

Yesterday my tulip patch were all green buds, with only a hint of color. Today, thanks to our spring heat wave, they just exploded. These are my favorites, bright yellow with red flames, a small part of a mix of Darwin hybrids, which have been coming back, better and better every year.

Also increasing every year are these Tarda species tulips. The red one is another Gregii tulip, Red Riding Hood. I love the color and the spotted leaves, but they don’t seem to be holding up as well.

But what I’m really excited about is the fruit trees I planted last year. They still look like sticks with leaves, but the peach tree is now sticks covered with beautiful pink flowers. And the plum tree has a couple of sweet little flowers.
Dare I hope for fruit?

  1. See the tree how big it’s grown…
    Hm, I think I already used that song.

    Um…
    what is fruit?
