I decided to join in the fun at Fertilizer Friday today. I enjoyed all the great garden blogs I discovered though the Garden Bloggers Bloom Day, so I thought I'd try this. Check out Tootsie's blog all the information about it at: Fertilizer Fridays.
I posted this same view of the 'Apricot Beauties' and muscari last year, but I love the combination so much. It's one of my favourite 'happy coincidences' that they bloom together:
|Tulipa 'Apricot Beauty and |
Muscari (Grape Hyacinth)
These are my shade-growing tulips called 'Firespay'. They also have the interesting habit of having more than one flower on each stem. These are the second year for these, in my garden, and I notice they are somewhat smaller than they were the first year:

Some other things that I have blooming today:
|Tulipa 'Yellow Emporer'|
|Tulipa 'Wildhof' in the foreground and 'Fringed Elegance'|
in the background.
|Lamium bought at a plant sale, so I don't|
know the variety.
|The hostas are starting to come up!|
