'Ice Cream' Tulips ~ another garden addition inspired by Pinterest!
Darn it anyway ~ what started out as cheap fun (the pinning part) has ended up giving me the "I wants!!!"
Photo above of an "Ice Cream' tulip just beginning to bud.
Below: Further along:
Not hard to see how they got their name, right?
I only purchased three bulbs last fall and so far, even tho I think they're pretty cool ~ I don't have any on my reorder form. What gives with that?? What are your thoughts?
Love 'em, ho-hum or No thanks???
Here's one fully open (or possibly just deformed??)
It looks every bit like a peony, doesn't it???
'Double Pleat Blackberry' Aquilegia vulgaris needed no help from Pinterest.
Aquilegias are another plant I have a "thing" for... Any aquilegia. But especially double ones.
Something I picked up from my very first garden mentor.
These were started from seed two years ago. Along with a double pink & a double light blue.
More photos to come.
p.s. First Clematis of the season has opened.
Once again, it's 'Asao' ~ I'd say gardening season is officially "on!" :)
