  1. A beautiful colour combo, and good to know they keep on growing after picking. I had a bunch delivered this morning from my Australian daughter for Mother’s Day – Poland celebrates on a different day, besides, my Polish daughter told me today she doesn’t think of me as her mother!!

  2. Such gorgeous tulips and great colours Tish! You captured them so beautifully. 😀 ♥

  3. Very lovely, and you can see why the Dutch go crazy…even today…over tulips. I still have not been to Holland during tulip season, but it’s on my list. The Dutch were some of the first to import coffee, as well!
