Fresh-Cut Friday - June Flowers



 A couple of weeks ago I bought a bunch of tulips
at the supermarket.
Once the blooms opened, I was captivated by the
wonderful colours!



 The red ones with yellow at the base of the cup
were so vibrant and fun - like colourful parrots!
I wonder if they are a strain of the 'parrot tulip'
that Mary of Little Red House has mentioned
before on her blog - I'm not sure, if you can
tell me I would love to know!



The pale creamy white with a cerise stripe
was beautiful too and the perfect foil for the loud red one!



I'm joining Liz for Fresh-Cut Friday
please pop over to her party
for a floral feast!


Thank you Liz for hosting!

Dear Shane,

The tulips are so very pretty and love all the gorgeous colours.
I think that the Parrot tulip are more twisted and have an almost fringed petal, resembling the colourful feathers of the tropical bird of the same name.
Hope you are enjoying the weekend and are you going to be watching the game with the All blacks versus the English?

Dearest Shane,
What a lovely surprise to see such beautiful tulip photos on your posting today!
ENJOY them, they are so lovely. They certainly look like parrot tulips.
Wishing you a blessed Pentecost weekend!

Mariette

Some beautiful flowers here Shane! I don't think I've seen tulips that full before. They almost look like roses when you squint your eyes :)

It's lovely that your bouquet has a few tulip varieties included in it. They really are pretty, Shane!

Have an enjoyable weekend.

Thanks for sharing your beautiful flowers. Would liked to have picked up a bouquet of flowers when out today, but no bargains at the store where I went.
Your mentioning the giveaway reminds me, I have not had one in a long time.

I'm with Vee.....I love tulips but have never grown any. I am tempted to pickup a bouquet at the market, but my cats would tear them up or eat them!
Thank you for sharing these vibrant blooms! Mildred

Hi Shane, lovely tulips…it seems you should get these a bit later in your year -- or are you coming out of winter already? We seem to get our tulips later winter/early spring, but who knows where they are flown in from! :-) Hope you're having a nice weekend,

Marilyn said...

Beautiful tulips can now be celebrated in all seasons, lucky you. Very pretty! Hope your weekend is spectacular!

Jeanie said...

shaggy tulips are lovely indeed -- and there is always a surprise when they open. Beautiful!

Happy June to you!

Lorrie said...

Such pretty tulips. I love the colours and textures.

Liz Hockamier said...

Oh! Those are lovely! The variegated ones are stunning! Don't you love this time of year? The flowers are so available and affordable. It is so hot here now that the flower season has ended. So it's all store boughs for me! :)
Thank you for joining in and sharing this pretty post on Fresh-Cut Friday!
