Tulips say the darndest things.


Don't they. 


They stretch and grow in all directions. 





They are talking to you. 






They keep on growing. Don't they know that part of them was left behind?






Some like to show off their faces.





And some like to hide their faces. 





Will they come up again this Spring? 





They will have to work very hard to come through all this snow. 

Have a wonderful weekend dear friends, 
and stay warm.

  1. I'm dreaming of spring right along with you. I woke to -8 degrees this morning . . . I long to see my first tulip popping through the earth.

    1. Hello Connie, I try not to hurry the season because we still have months with snow and then rain. It's a good thing that we can buy a few flowers in our grocery store.
      Thank you for visiting.

    1. Hello Villrose, I will have to keep an eye out for our deer herd that roams through our fields. They have been known to dig up my bulbs. Thank you for visiting and leaving a comment.

  4. Dear Gina,
    I like tulips best when they begin to reach in all directions as the one does moving toward the pretty framed tile of blue and yellow in your top photo. You have such lovely varieties of tulips and I do hope they will all come up again in the spring.
    Happy greetings, Sieglinde

    1. Dear Sieglinde, I planted so many new tulip varieties last fall and now I can't wait to see them. I have even planned our trip to Portugal so that I won't miss the Daffodils and Tulips.
      I see that your house is always full of fresh flowers...a girl after my own heart.

    1. Hello Anette, I love your comment: "Color bombing me". My eyes always go to color. Color is like a magnet.

    1. Dear Rosemary, Your tulips are already peeping through? In January? I was just thinking this morning how short our growing season is. I need to move to your neighborhood.

  7. Beautiful tulips, heralds of spring. It will be some time before they appear here in Normandy but happily we already have bright yellow daffodils to bring us sunshine. Have a wonderful time in the pousadas of Portugal. We have happy memories of our stay at the Pousada Palacido de Queluz close to Lisbon.

    1. Hello Maggie,
      How lucky you are to already have daffodils. It will be months before I see them in my garden. Even though it's been many years, I still remember the beautiful Pousada Palacido de Queluz. In fact, I left a pair of very expensive shoes under the bed and they were kind enough to send them to me in America.
      Thank you Maggie, for stopping by.

  8. Oh my word those are gorgeous -- and I'm talking about both the colorful tulips and the way you arranged" them in your mosaics. So colorful; I love these. (I'm in Florida, where we have floral color even this time of year, but we never ever see tulips and daffodills -- it's too hot for typical spring flowers and I miss them. So I always love seeing beautiful pictures. Memories of our past life in the Pacific Northwest (but I don't think I ever grew any as gorgeous as yours here.)

    1. Hello Sallie, You are correct. It takes very cold months for Tulips and Daffodils to grow and be beautiful. I know that people have tried to pr-cool them in refrigerators. It works for some bulbs but they never look as glorious as when they are grown in colder climates.
      Thank you for your visit.
