I dont have a huge front yard, but this fall i tried to make the most of it! I will confess, the tulips in the walkway were supposed to be appleblossom mix of pinks and white. Not yellow! Ill survive tho! :)

Humble? Heavenly. Every time I see tulips like that I wish I would have planted more last Fall. Are the orange tulips, "Daydream"?

I know how disappointing it is to expect a special mix of colors and get some ringers.

RE: My humble spring garden

I think it's beautiful! I'm not a fan of yellow, but the yellow in your garden makes the whole thing pop.

Question, once the flowers die off for the summer, do you plant other flowers on top and it won't hurt the bulbs?

I've never grown bulbs because I don't know how. lol

All the gardens lok nice and I love the tulips. They do look lovely framing your walkway even if they aren't the expected color.

The whole area looks really pretty. You did a nice job of mixing up the different early bloomers.

Thank you all sooo much! It was so nice to come home from work to your wonderful comments.

Schoolhouse, they are apricot beauty. I ordered and planted them almost7 years ago! I can't believe they come back every year. I love them.

Oakleyok, I usually let my tulips get buried by foliage of other plants. This is the first year I planted so many bulbs tho. Honestly I'll be yanking the yellow tulips when they are done and next year ordering from a place so I can get what colors I really like.
I have to say I was very excited the daffodils held up till the tulips started!

Pretty petals, I have 2 dogs that love to help garden.
Unfortunately I just switched my pics to my iPad and I can't figure out how to rotate pics so here's the sweetest pic I have of them. The pug is named Oliver and he's 7. The bulldog is named diesel and he is almost 2.

He grew into a 70 pound sack of potaoes lap dog! This is him on top of the rocks around our pond. I was laughing so hard because my dh dosnt like the dogs around pond since they knock rocks into water and he has to fish them out. But diesel loves to watch the fish and drink pond water so nothing keeps him out!

Diesel and Oliver are just precious. I love the shot of Diesal with his mouth resting on the stone glaring into the pond. So funny! Our sweet pets just make our lives so much better. Their personalities are so funny and unique. I enjoyed looking at your beautiful home and blooms. Thanks for sharing, Judy
