Beautiful combo of white and purple tulips! Love it! Lovey dubby Thumbs up

Was this a Colorblends 'combo batch' of tulips? If so, what Colorblends "variety" is it?

Thank you Marilyn and Karen, especially for the acorn tip @Marilyn!

I don't know what it was! It was taken at the Tower Hill Botanic Gardens in Boylston, MA, a place I love. I've purchased plants at shows there and they are always extremely healthy and do very well. This was their spring display one or two years ago. The whole place was absolutely gorgeous.

Beautiful banner Joanna! Like the rhythm and movement!

Thank you Ginny and Mac!

Mac, I don't remember specifically which picture it was made from, but here are a few from that day. One of them has got to be the one (and a couple have got to NOT be the one!) It was just such a glorious visit that I had to include them.

Thank You! Stan! Yes, I do enjoy them, whether they be in my garden or someone else's. This time of year, both tulips and daffodils abound.

@joannakat,

Tower Hill Botanic Gardens in Boylston, MA looks like a great place to spend time alone or with friends.
Thanks for the extra pics......the bed of tulips is really nicely framed.
Good job! Thumbs up

Thanks Ginny and Cal!

Yes, it is. I do tend to go by myself so that I can linger here and there without worrying about boring someone else. When they have shows, there are so many responsible gardeners selling well cared for plants that it's like heaven.
