A beautiful flower, Pat. Heaven knows where mine have gone, they just didn't come up this year, perhaps they have a shelf life and are finished.

That's a tulip? It's lovely, and resembles nothing I would imagine a tulip looking like. Of course, I know very little about flowers, other than they smell good and are usually colorful. Still, I like it.

So very beautiful. Did your daughter plant the bulb last year or she managed to have it comes out by itself year after year.

Hilary said...

Hi Pat, a very exotic and beautifully coloured tulip.

Grace and Bradley said...

What an interesting post for "M". Your daughter must be a good gardner that be able to grow the tulip year after year.
