In Praise of Tulips

 According to Wikipedia, tulips form a genus of spring-blooming perennial herbaceous bulbiferous geophytes though I'm not sure that description gives them the credit they deserve!

Wild tulips are found over large parts of Central Asia in temperate mountainous regions. Most people will be more familiar with the hybrids and cultivars found in the gardens and parks of Europe and, perhaps, tulip mania in the 17th Century.

Tulips bring a real splash of colour and vibrancy to any garden from mid-March to the end of April. They can be a bit showy for some but who could not fail to be cheered by seeing these magnificent blooms on display.

If you prefer something a little more delicate...

Enjoy the colours...
