This was the last burst of tulips Fairy Tales display before the change to Nursery Rhymes and my goodness, the tulips looked drop-dead amazing! These photos were taken before the crowd came in.

The kaleidoscope of colours was mesmerizing and the new varieties such as the frilly ones were eye-popping! 

Snow White and the Seven Dwarves


Little Red Riding Hood

the Snow Queen

Tulipa 'Red Riding Hood'

Hansel and Gretel's Candyhouse

Tulipa 'Queensland'

the white frills lend a unique look to the conventional Tulips

this is the first time I see the Dicentra spectabilis

I didn't expect it to be so small in stature

nature produces so many hearts in a plant
