Maytime Tulips

One of the tulips I planted in the fall was Maytime.


This lily-flowered tulip has deep reddish violet blooms with a light halo around each petal.


Graceful and elegant ...


a pretty splash of color.


We are receiving some much needed rain over the next couple of days.  Perfect weather for crafting  :-)

May your day be filled with sweet memories and flowers.

Very pretty Donna! I love them when they have soft shading like that. I have some that I'm still waiting to see bloom, but I just discovered a bunny has been eating them. He's taken down 7 of the 12! Grr... I do have others blooming so I'm happy about that! Hope your day is beautiful too!

Tulips! I love Tulips! They are my favorite flower :) My mum used to grow them in the garden in a variety of colors - so refreshing to see them here today! TFS!

I adore tulips, Donna! I haven't had any success growing them in my front yard (I don't try in the back because they'd get trampled by the dog). Your tulips are beautiful!

What a beautiful series this is, Donna. I love the soft pink, and the frame you used for the last one. Just perfect for it.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Lovely composition and photographed Donna, I love tulips, just a shame the season is so short, it is all over in my garden for this year. Now I am eagerly waiting for the roses to bloom :-)
