Crown Imperials and Tulips

I always forget what the orange flower is called and have to look it up every year. There's one section of Chicago Botanic Garden that has a large area filled with these mixed in other bulbs, Holland's Glory are the red ones shown here. Someday I'll remember Crown Imperials, Crown Imperials, Crown Imperials...

Thank you, everyone! I finally figured out why I think "Chrysler" every time I hear Crown Imperial. It seems they used to make a model named Imperial Crown, and I remember my aunt always drove Chryslers, nothing else. She must have had one that the name stuck with me. Maybe this will help me remember the name for next year! Hilarious!

Thanks for that blast from the past, back when cars were boats! I'll admit I've had my fair share of those boats too.
