Tulips & Irises






Please excuse my giant hair! I don't know what was going on there.  I loved the flowers that John got for me.  He knows I am not a pink person and the rich purple hue was perfect. I am continually fascinated by bulbs, perhaps because they don't grow in such abundance in California.

i don't remember seeing tulips (in the ground) before moving to utah. i guess that cold and frost is good for something :) i also think that's why we paid so much to see the tulip festival at thanksgiving point....twice... :)

I've never planted bulbs before but I really want to! I even bought calla lily bulbs at Costco a few years ago but never planted them. I'm always afraid I'll mess up somehow!
@Jen The tulip festival always tempts us too! But we've been lucky to have free passes from a friend. We're out of them now though.
