But I have always thought that these tulips must have had names. They were red, and orange and red, and red and orange and yellow, like the ember in a nursery fire of a winter’s evening. I remember them.

Neil Gaiman




  1. My favorite little Tulip ditty is:

    There are tulips in the garden.
    There are tulips in the park.
    But the best kind of tulips
    Are your tulips in the dark!

    (I have no idea of the author – a family recited poem)
    Randy πŸ˜‰

  2. Now, those are YELLOW tulips! (Only…the petals grow in triplets…why don’t we call them threelips…) πŸ˜‰

  3. Names? Call them: Yellow Tulips!

  4. Beautiful Janet! Are they yours? How is everything? I haven’t heard from you for awhile. We got our honeybees last weekend and now we’re waiting for flowers. I noticed the day we got them they were already coming home with pollen on their legs and realized that the willows in the wetlands are in bloom. Yay! πŸ™‚ At least something is blooming.

    • Kimberly, I’ve been manically driving back and forth so I haven’t been doing much communicating of any kind. The photos are all of the same flower which is at our rental house.

      Things are going well. Heading back to Cleveland soon for the last push to get the house ready to put on the market.

      What exciting news about your bees!!! I’m sure I’ll be seeing some pictures soon. πŸ™‚ Here it’s as if spring was only one or two days and then the plants for the most part went straight into summer, but not the temperatures. I’ll try to email soon.

    Isn’t nature just the best? Great photo’s Janet. πŸ™‚

What do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this, that or the other thing.
