For those who have been following my blog you may
remember that a few weeks back I had found some
variegated tulip leaves coming up that I did not know
where they came from or what kind of tulip it may be.
The tulips that I had in this bed were yellow and orange
striped and did not have variegated leaves on them.
Well the tulip finally bloomed but it is still a mystery
and a surprise because it was not there last year and
I did not plant any new ones in this part of the yard.
The variegated tulip is red and white and beside it was
another surprise tulip, a bright red one.
I had removed some flower from this bed to relocate them
last Fall so is it possible that these are some very old bulbs
that were already there and in my digging around in this bed
caused them to bloom again?
Or could they be bulbs formed from the yellow and orange
striped tulips? No, not likely. Hmmm?
The red and the white with red striped tulip are still a mystery
but they are pretty together so I will leave them alone where
I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. It was so beautiful
here, in fact we had a mini heat wave for this time of the year in
Ohio with temps of 85 and 86 degrees. I was outdoor soaking it
all up and working in the flowerbeds.
Got some flowers moved around and planted three new
creeping Thyme "Magic Carpet", plus many other projects.
Got the plants that had been overwintering in the basement
up to get some sun and fertilizer. Moved the mini green house
outdoors to harden off my transplants. It was just a beautiful
weekend to get outdoors and enjoy what I love best, working
on my flower beds and of course taking some photographs.
We have one more day of very warm weather today and I will
be right back out there soaking it up before the rain and cooler
weather comes back in tomorrow.
Happy Gardening Everyone!
UPDATE: My computer is getting ready to crash so
I may be gone until the problem is solved.
Gotta love and hate em'.
