Blam! This banner just jumps right out at you with those fiery colors. I love the shadows in the photo as well. Fabulous job Marilyn!

Marilyn, this is as exciting as a Moulin Rouge poster for flowers, bright, fiery and energetic. What a great display of the tulips. Would love to see the photo in its entirety, if possible. Love it.

Thanks everyone for the nice comments and thumbsup! Thanks @Fleur569 and @Pirl for the acorn tips! Thank You! I tip my hat to you. Thumbs up

Here's the pic I made the banner with. I flipped it left to right when I made the banner. I thought it looked better that way. (edited to say: maybe Calif Sue flipped it when she approved the banner. don't remember)

I took it 4/19/14 and it was late afternoon at 3:42 pm.

Beautiful Parrot Tulip that overwintered and bloomed 2015. The wild rabbits chewed some of the tulips, so I didn't get those to bloom either year. The banner is of the two lower flowers in the pic. I loved that Tulip both years. Worth growing again, just for the color and beauty! When I dug the bed it was in this past fall, I planted Single Late Tulips in the place where the Parrots were.

Great banner, Marilyn! I can't wait to see tulips blooming again. Only about 12-14 weeks away for me.
