Good bulb info site.

A couple of weeks ago I bought some Anemone (bulb or corms?) and the package referred you to a website. So I went and checked it out and I have to say it was kind of informative, especially to someone like me who doesn't have much experience with bulbs.

There is a pic of a 'Queen of Night' Tulip on their site that makes my mouth water.

Check out if you would like to learn about Spring/Summer bulbs.

Yellow Tulip w/red variegation

The past couple of days in my garden has seen the rise of these other Tulips in my bulb bed. When they were unfurling they were completely yellow but after a day a red variegation appears on the edges of the pedals. I'm not sure if these have a name but they were given to me by the same gardener that gave me the flaming parrots I pictured below. If memory serves me right Diene also gave me some Daffs and Alliums. Unfortunately I didn't remember to photograph those or I would have added pics.

It's been interesting to see the ladies who garden on the block pass by and ask me what the bulbs are because they've never seen these varieties before. So a big "thanks" goes out to this generous gardener.
