In April 2006, we went to the Netherlands for 4 wonderful days, and spent 2 of them at the Keukenhof Gardens. What a paradise for anyone who loves spring flowers. I bought many, many bulbs for myself, and my neighbor had me pick out some for her. Several that I bought her were so pretty, I wanted them in my own garden! So, here's what I found:
Apricot Beauty is one I bought for my neighbor - beautiful. I saw Prinses (princess?) Irene on Zoey's blog (Perennial Passion) this year and they were very pretty. I think these will be a very nice combination.
These two I just thought were very pretty - not sure if they'll be planted together, but I think they'd be pretty together.
Elegant Lady was one I picked up for my neighbor - very tall and very pastel. Abigail I just thought looked cool in the package pic.
These two I saw at the Keukenhof - they were gorgeous. I bought Monte Carlo for my neighbor, and they bloomed a really long time.
And some of you may remember my love affair last spring with Carnaval de Nice - this is a fantastic late tulip. I decided I needed more!!!
I won't really have fun digging all these holes, but I'm quite sure I'll enjoy all of them next spring.
