The Tulip House

There is a retired couple in our town with more tulips in their garden than I've ever seen in one place before.  I posted some photos of their tulips a couple of years ago.  The early spring weather this year is helping the display be spectacular.



While there are a few other colors, most are red or yellow.


Known as the tulip house in town, it was a front page story in our local newspaper recently.

Gardening.  Sharing good news.

  1. Gosh that took some planning to get that tulip bed to look so fantastic. I would drive by often to see that! Fantastic.

  2. How very beautiful! Thanks so much for sharing these photos. How much joy these tulips give to so many people.
    In my hometown growing up, two older ladies had a yard full of jonquils.
    Happy Easter to you!

  6. In the photo without a house, you'll notice the grasses and trees. Behind that is a huge vegetable garden. They also have a vegetable garden behind their house. The tulip area becomes lawn. They have a lot of mums around the gardens. Maybe I can get some photos of their wonderful mum display this fall.

  8. These tulips are truly spectacular. The only place I have seen with more tulips is the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, North Carolina.

  9. Wow--that is ALOT of Tulips in a small yard. WE have alot--but not nearly that many.

    We did see some awesome tulips today as we visited the Biltmore House and Gardens... They were awesome as well as the Azaleas.

  10. Nice pictures. Here are my thoughts:) Our wildflowers are like your tulips. When I see a neighbor with wildflowers like your tulips, I have a bit of garden envy. But then I forget the envy and just stand in awe at their masterpiece. Very lovely set up here:)
