These white tipped tulips in with the Prinses Irene's came in a mixed pack. They look like Private Eyes, so I'm going with that.
Sweetheart tulips are definitely one of my favorite tulips.
These are another of my favorite: Gavota. They are very hardy and multiply.
Abba are a rich red (which you can't see very well in this picture since the light is shining through the back). They look like roses.
Here are my box bulbs in full bloom. I am planning to get some of these planted later today.
Brunnera "Kings Randsom" - a non-tulip is blooming!
Another non-tulip, Mount Hood Daffodils.
Sunrise tulips give you the most bang for your buck; they are one of the first to bloom and one of the last to die back. Plus, they are just so beautiful and change their look as they age: creamy yellow with just a slight tipping of red, to fully blushed with a more distinct red tipping.
Tulip holding pen; I plant the tulips here until spring when I can have a better idea where they should go in the garden.
