Tulips, big and small

Our front garden is coming alive with punches of colour from the tulips and the soon to pop sea of alliums.  From tall tulips ...
to the diminutive 'Little Beauty'.  I know it looks like I only plant pink hues of tulips and except for the odd one, next to the colour lavender, I like pink.
Tucked in the corner of the house by the front door is this pretty pulmonaria.
I'm linking with Tracie at Fishtail Cottage for Cottage Flora Thursday; we're showing ours, now let's see yours.  :-)

  2. I have a special place in my heart for the tulip. Each year the National Brain Tumor Association does a "tulips for tumors" fundraiser for brain tumor awareness, where they sell tulip bulbs for this cause. Funny, I just drafted my post for Saturday with a pink tulip in it....great minds think alike.
    Thank you for posting this. ~ Trish

  4. How beautiful! Our tulips are just finishing up and are actually late this year. With our cooler spring weather many of my tulips lasted for a really long time!

  7. How beautiful are the tulips from your garden. And I absolutely love the blue pulmonarias. I don't think I've ever seen those before.

    Happy Cottage Flora Thursday!

  9. Tulips don't grow well here, so I never tire of seeing them in other people's gardens. They are a beautiful flower. Yours are lovely.

  10. Gorgeous pops of color. I'd have never known that the "Little Beauty" as a tulip. How delightful they are. Love the shapes and gracefulness of tulips. It's a special time in the garden when they are blooming.
