Fire Tulip

I have a love hate relationship with tulips. On the one hand they are beautiful flowers that are one of the harbingers of Spring. On the other, they are very short lived.

When Den and I went to France a few years ago, tulips were blooming everywhere and I had never known before how many different varieties there were. Why in Monets' garden, they actually had black tulips!

This year I decided to to plant some that were different than the norm and this is one of them. I love the way this bloom looks similar to flames. It's simply beautiful!
