Sometimes (okay, often!) a particular bloom will capture me. I appreciated every detail of this elegant tulip: the stately, slim stem, the curl and flare of its petals, the snow white centers with a splash of lemon yellow, the curvy, matte green leaves. I am romanced by its graceful form blushing rosy pink. On a sunny day it reaches to the sky and the blossoms softly splay to the warmth of the sun. These were new bulbs, called ‘Tender Whisper’, planted last fall. I am reminded why, even though I have many, many bulbs in the garden, it is so worth planting a few new ones for delight in the spring! See more tulips by clicking here.
