A Spark of Happiness

Tulips and I have a some what strained relationship .. mostly on my side from great expectations to utter disappointment.
Thus not to much "tip toeing ? through the tulips" here in my garden.
HOWEVER ... these amazing ones I planted for Canada's 150th birthday have really brightened my opinion of "some" ? tulips.
I thought they deserved their very own special post .. enjoy !

They are so pretty! I have something similar called 'Sorbet,' and they remind me of peppermint candy. My tulips are long gone, and I miss them.

Hello Rose girl ! I have seen there are a few varieties of white and red tulips .. they didn't give the exact name to these ones .. just that they were on special for Canada's 150th birthday. I love them : )
We are just getting caught up to the rest of the gardens now .. rain day today nice !

You got some good ones! Hooray, and what a great year for spring flowers. Am out in the garden today. Hopefully I'll be able to move tomorrow - can't believe good weather and a weekend have finally collided!

Oh man, I love the choice you picked out there with the colourings. I'm not usually partial to white ones BUT THESE ONES ARE AWESOME. Well done Joy, these are fantastic ones you've planted.
