The gardens here besides being filled with tulips and daffodils (many that may have been blown away by age and a recent rain storm) also have a great deal of these flowers in different colors. This week I will be featuring the other blooms that are in season now at the Inniswood Metro Gardens.
That it’s the weekend? Ok, go right ahead and groan. Hope your weekend is bright and chipper like these two tulips. Mentioning these tulips, can anyone find what’s different about these as compared to the others featured ? And no, I don’t mean the color and shape. It’s something I don’t recall seeing on a tulip before and it’s looking right at you.
Said the beckoning tulip to the honeybee
Why don’t you fly over and come see me
I’ve got something for you that’s free
And with it we will make sweet sweet honey…
The leaves here definitely look like tulip leaves but if you recall my post from yesterday – one of these things is not like the other! We could be dealing with more than six petals here. Anyone know the name of this frilly flower?
