Regardless, the spring flowers persist! We are harvesting tulips, daffodils and the very first field perennial, thermopsis. The daffodils are so precious, beautiful creamy whites with a variety of double ruffled centers--salmon pink, Delnashaugh, butter yellow, White Lion and deep saffron, Acropolis. We also have the very fragrant Abba, with multiple creamy white popcorn blossoms on each stem. And last, but not least, lemon yellow double Tahiti, with deep saffron center ruffles. Can you tell, I adore daffodils.
I am still crushing on Gudoshnik, the big, monster double blooming tulip that comes in a variety of shades from lemon yellow to deep coral red--all from the same bulb! It's the luck of the harvest with this beauty. I cut them short-ish and cluster them in vases to look like yellow, peachy, coral peonies. Love them. My favorite tulip.
Renown Unique, another gorgeous double has my heart as well. Again, very much like a peony, everything but the fragrance. Maureen Double is like a small white peony and I adore her as well. Poor Akebono, our double yellow tulip, like the middle sister gets a little overlooked, but she's a darling for color, fragrance and longevity.
Our Avignon Parrot tulips have finished but we began harvesting Flaming Parrots today--always a fav. Stupendous when they are tight and lime green, beautiful when opening and amazing just before they are fully blown and fading.
We also have an excellent variety of French tulips in orange, pink, lavender, purple, white and red.
If you have not tried thermopsis, please let me know and I'll give you a sample. I love this work horse of a flower. The first blooming field perennial on the farm--dear thing out in the freaking snow--it looks like a cross between a snap dragon and a lupine. From the pea family, it is yellow and lasts forever.
