Hi Penny,

What did you buy??

I bought some more 25 double tulips  in shades of pink to rose.  
Also some short little tulips the name escapes me that are only 
suppose to grow 6 in tall.  I was given about 200 red tulips a few 
years ago (50th anniversary(war) Dutch Tulips). . . . then  I was 
given about 50 pink  and 50 "blue" tall late tulips.

I'm not that fussy for red so I planted them in my shrub border and 
that is on the far side of the house so I don't see it easily.  The pink 
and blue plus the yearly extra's I have in my main garden right in 
front of the patio.  Plus I have hundreds of grape hycinths - I really 
like them - plus in the spring I am over run with forget me nots . . . 
mine are mostly blue but I have pink and white as well. . .oh I almost 
forgot also have some "pink" daffoldils.  Normal daffs and yellow and 
white tulips are in the front bedplus some new double striped green 
and white tulips.

I really like spring<g>
