Last weekend (don't worry I'll soon stop talking about last weekend) my mom brought a large bouquet of tulips from her garden to give to our hosts. They were breathtakingly beautiful and I snapped more photos of them than was sane.
The tulips are all gone bye* at our home. We're reveling in the beauty and fragrance of lilacs right now, a whole three weeks early. My garden is also a bloom with forget-me-nots, moss phlox, muscari, violas, bleeding hearts, bergenia, vinca minor and columbine. Starting the season of pinks, purples and blues.
But these last tulips of the season were all about red, yellow and orange. I couldn't get enough of these beauties. Thanks so much mom for adding this splash of color and beauty to our weekend.
*Does anyone else use this term gone bye to describe the end of a flowers bloom, I hadn't heard it before moving to Maine.
Update: looks like no one (of my readers), other than Mainers use the term gone by (seems I spelled it wrong also).
