Tulips





One of you requested photos of the the tulips in my yard when they flowered so I am sharing a few of them today. They have been in bloom for a few days now and I was waiting for an overcast day to make some photos. However I decided to photograph them yesterday morning, a bright and beautiful sunny day.
The first photo shows six tulips that I planted around a fairly large rock in my yard. The tulips I planted close to rocks are blooming first. I suspect the rock absorbs heat from the sun and warms the soil around it.

The other two photos show the inside of the large red and yellow flowers. I will continue to photograph plants around the yard as Spring progresses in this part of the world.
