Apricot Impression

We carry on today with more tulips from around Dow's Lake today.






The type name is slightly hidden for this tulip- it's called Apricot Impression.


And carrying on with the series of panels, here's this one.

  2. Very effective plantations. And I love the purple muscari in the sixth photo. Your tulips are so much later than ours. I'm sad our spring is over.

  6. I think this is illegal. Why should you have so many beautiful tulips and we have none? Doesn't seem fair if you ask me! ;)

  17. For some strange reason, I look at your pix and am reminded of the movie Dr. Zhivago, where the camera pans fields of daffodils. The tulips make just such an impression!

  28. You are so fortunate. These are beautiful stands of tulips. They don't seem to grow in southwest Florida, and I drive north too late to see them up here this year.
