tulip time!

 
Design Impression

This week was tulipmania in the garden!  A couple of days in the 70s coaxed all of the tulips to color up just in time for mother's day.  Couldn't have planned it better if I tried.  Each spring I'm in awe of tulips more and more, and this time around I wanted to better capture their fleeting beauty!  Here's the 2014 lineup, in order of opening in my little tulip bed:
Orange Princess and Apricot Impression
Akebono (above- my favorite!) and Jaap Groot (below)
