Talk about Tulips!
Beautiful tulips at the Wooden Shoe Tulip Festival in Woodburn, Oregon.
I wanted to begin my post with my absolute favorite! Well, ok they're all my favorite, but this one just stood out and it's colors remind me of the ol' "long-john" popsicles I used to get from the popsicle man's truck when I was a kid. (Ooo, remember the bomb-pops too? Oh, sorry, I'm getting off the subject. I don't think I remember any red, white & blue tulips here).
Just rows and rows of colors!
Some very unusual tulips.
So which one is your favorite?
If you can't make it to Oregon for the Wooden Shoe Festival this month, you can order bulbs on their web site which I have listed above. I order from them each year and they are beautiful! Be sure to order early because a lot of the more popular types sell out.
This is one I ordered, but I can't remember their exact name. Notice the pink on the tip. I chose to grow them in a container. Our desert soil isn't the best for planting in the ground.
I think they turned out great and give my garden a little taste of Spring.
Thanks for stopping by!
