Haupt Conservatory

Thought you’d like to see a picture of the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory, in the New York Botanical Garden in the Bronx. I visited at this time of year a few years ago. What a great spring scene!

Checkered tulip, or fritillaria

These sweet little flowers come up every spring in my garden. Smaller than regular tulips (which they aren’t really), they do have their own charm.

Checkered tulip (fritillaria) naturalizes if happy in the garden.

Field of red tulips

I’ve been sick with that awful bug that’s going around, so here’s a shot from last year’s Skagit Valley Tulip Festival, north of Seattle, WA. This year the warm weather is bringing earlier blooming up there in Skagit County.
