Beautiful tulips! We have a few but sooner or later the voles or mice will eat the bulbs. Daffodils, on the other hand, aren't tasty to the varmints so we have them in plenty!

Elles sont magnifiques, et tellement variées !Nous avons planté dans le jardin les bulbes rapportés de Hollande par notre fils .

You taught me quite a lot about various tulips with these pictures - thank you!

PS My tulip is of the ordinary kind...

All tulips? Wow! They are beautiful and unusual. I love the white with the yellow middle. Some are almost like lilies!

Soms wordt er gepraat over tulpen alsaf het maar ordinaire bloemen zijn, maar er zijn zoveel mooie soorten. Denk dat de meeste niet weten dat er zo veel verschillende zijn.
