Lunaria and Fancy Tulips

This Lunaria comes all the way from Bealtaine Cottage in Ireland! Well, the seeds did. I got them from Colette a few years ago, and the Lunaria has finally found its favorite spot at Faery Hof:


The perennial tulips I fell in love with two years ago at Tulip Fest in Holland, Michigan have begun their show:


With any luck, they’ll eventually look like these. Hey, my hubby is half Dutch, so I’m practically required to love tulips!

Another Holland, Michigan splurge, these fancy “parrot” tulips, open to orange, green and yellow in the same flower:


Today also marks the first bloom of these anonymous tulips in residence courtesy of the Squirrel Relocation Program. These pink beauties have recovered from their harrowing squirrel journey and continued to multiply by one bloom per year:


Wishing you a beautiful day!

    I had to look up this Lunaria plant and it is naturalized the world over, and has many names including “money plant” because the seed pods look like coins, or flat coin purses. πŸ™‚ I’ve had some daffodils pop up in strange places, so I guess the SRP is active in these parts, too. πŸ™‚


  12. Thank you, Linette! Fingers, toes and wings crossed that next year you’ll be looking out YOUR windows at these. ❀

  13. Yes, it’s pretty cool! The coins make fun indoor decorations, too. We have another rogue tulip along a walkway. What makes me giggle is that the SRP knows how to place these little thrillers. The tulip will bloom just as all the other colors die out, but before the next round I planted begin. They’re actually better than I am! I accidentally yanked out a bunch of my favorite little blue, white and purple flowers, of which I don’t even know the names, thinking the leaves were grass. Somehow I managed to leave all the grass, though. Oops. πŸ™‚
