Pink and white Tulips

After the species tulips, these pink and white tulips are the next to come into full bloom. This is interesting to me, to document the order the different colors of tulips flower. Though, I do need to take into account the effect on bloom time of the micro-climate where each tulip color is planted.
I have noticed this in the daffodils, where I have a very many of the same bulb, planted in various places around the ranch. The ones on the south-east facing wall of the house bloom first. So that seems to be the hot spot.

I had hoped to be publishing flower photos from my new camera, which are fantastic viewed in the camera. ‘Technical difficulties’ getting the photos from the camera to the computer are slowing things down at the moment. It shouldn’t be that hard to figure this out (famous last words!).
