I dug him out, potted him up, and left him sitting on the deck in a sunny location overnight. I gasped when I got home from work and saw this! The poor guy was nearly scorched to death. I immediately moved him to the shade and will have to wait for some new growth.
Here's some prettier things to look at. I've been checking out the Breck's site to see what's new this year.
Look at this double-fringed tulip from Breck's. It looks like a begonia.
It's interesting. I love the color.
It's about $2 per bulb.
I like this tulip, too. The fact is I've rarely met a tulip I didn't like! This one is called Hotpants. It's a more reasonable $9.99 for 8 bulbs. It opens white with a little purple stripe that grows wider as it matures.
I have a few tulip varieties that change as they mature. That's always interesting to watch.
What about this Hair Allium?
Not exactly pretty, but I find it piques my interest, too.
One of the most interesting tulips I spotted was this one:
Touted as Flashy as a flamenco dancer, this Blumex tulip is way over the top. Have you ever seen such a crazy and wild tulip? I like this one even though it does not look like a tulip. It would be worth having just for its artistic expression.
I am planning to order all of these. In fact, they are all sitting in my Breck's basket awaiting the mouse click to finalize the order. If you spend $75, you get free shipping, but that's not really good enough for me. The shipping is only about $13 dollars. I want the spend $25, get $25 off coupons like they had last year!
Has anyone seen those coupons this year?
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
