I bought these tulips from a big box store, and much to my surprise, they are the prettiest tulips I have in my garden. I’m pretty much a stickler for tagging my perennials, but I hired someone to organize my shed–and I’ll be damned if I could find the tag that came with the tulips!  Now I’m trying to “think” like an organized person, so I can figure out where she put it. Does anyone know the variety of this lovely flower?

Quote of the Day for YOU:                                                                          So Nature deals with us, and takes away
Our playthings one by one, and by the hand
Leads us to rest so gently, that we go
Scarce knowing if we wish to go or stay, 
Being too full of sleep to understand
How far the unknown transcends the what we know.

~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
