April 1st and it is Market Friday!

Dutch flowers... when I think of Dutch flowers, the first thing that enters my mind are TULIPS.


The attractive appearance and vibrant color of tulips make them among the most fulfilling and rewarding flowers for a gardener to grow.


They say it is easy grow them. Just pick a sunny site that has good drainage, and you're ready to go! But, I haven't ventured planting tulips. I know there is more to it than that!


Dig the area and loosen the soil about a foot (30 cm.) deep. You should add some compost or dried manure to the soil. Also, add some 5-10-5 or 5-10-10 granular fertilizer to help the bulbs grow. Mix the existing soil, amendments, and fertilizer, just like a cake batter until well blended. After you have properly prepared the site for the tulips, you can easily dig the individual planting holes. You need to dig each hole three times as deep as the tulip bulb is tall. There should be twice as much soil over the tip of the bulb as height of the bulb, so if your tulip bulb measures 2 ½ inches (5 cm.) tall, dig your hole 8 inches (20 cm.) deep, so you’ll have 5 inches (13 cm.) of soil above the bulb. You should plant the bulb in groups of ten if you’re putting them in your perennial border, and space them a couple of inches (5 cm.) apart.

You see what I mean... complexity! So, every year when the tulips are out, I head to two nurseries and I view them. Especially now that we have #MarketFriday to show them. Pink, white, yellow, orange, purple... they are a sight to behold!


This one is taken from THE MANY COLORS OF TULIPS AND THEIR MEANINGS.

Red tulips are the hue of choice to express that you are deeply in love. The color red evokes passion and romance. Yellow flowers were once associated with jealousy and hopeless love. But, modern interpretations have gotten a lot sunnier. Yellow tulips now stand for hope and cheerful thoughts. White tulips are the flowers to pick for an apology bouquet. If you need to say you are sorry, white flowers and maybe a gift of chocolate are a worthwhile gesture.


Pink flowers express happiness and confidence. This makes them a very good choice when congratulating a friend on a new job or promotion. If you want to let her know that she is your queen, choose an arrangement of purple tulips. Purple has long been the color of royalty. Purple can also be used to express admiration for a loved one’s accomplishments.


Did I take few so that I can appreciate them at home?
No, I didn't. I don't dare, hehehe 😀.



I am happy and content to just

admire them... in the nursery!



I used Pinmapple to pin this post to the world map using a code generated at Pinmapple to mark the place where I traveled and took these photos.

It is so cool! You should try it!

Thanks for the rehive, @pixresteemer!

OMG such beautiful tulips you have shared.

Awww... thank you @salexa5!
I went to a garden store where I took photos of the tulips!
Take care!

So beautiful

Really, the first time I saw it I thought this was a very beautiful painting of tulips. But, after I looked again and looked at it carefully, it turned out to be real.

You photographed it very well.
Thank you @silversaver888 for these flower photos that so many people love.

I love these flowers too!
But I will just have to content myself with just looking at them!
It so sad that they are short lived.
Here is California, most of the flowers bloom most of the months.
Thank you @zedamna2022!

What a great sight in my morning, thank you for this :) And from this, I also learned more about what the colors signify. You are fortunate to have such a nursery where you can enjoy and have some moments with those beautiful tulips!

They're great, aren't they?
Hahaha... they have the same meaning for different kinds of flowers,
especially roses!
That's one thing nice around here...
you'll find anything you would like to find,
well, almost anything... hehehe 😁
Beautiful, fabulous, lovely tulips!

I have never really tried here; back in Ohio, I did used to, but here, it rains so much and they say you are supposed to dig them up during the rainy season, which honestly, doesn't make sense given they are supposed to winter in the ground. I've always been so busy with work, and even just working 3 days a week, I find I have little time to really do the things I want to do as it's always something else that needs doing. Wow, sorry for the book dump, lol! Take care sis!🤗😘🌹💖

South of us in the town of Mt. Vernon they have the annual tulip festival. You can view acres of different varieties....simply beautiful!!😀

I haven't seen acres of tulips, hehehe!
I believe you, @silvertop 😀!

It's very impressive @silversaver888, check out the link!😀

These pictures make me so happy! My boys and I planted tulip bulbs last fall. The snow is nearly melted here, so they ought to be coming up soon. I can't wait to see their colourful flowers! 🌷

I never ventured into planting tulips.
They are pretty.
In my past life, I used to plant roses.
I have a tree rose today, and I want to share its first bloom this spring!

That is so beautiful! I love the pink and white with a touch of yellow. Gorgeous!!!

And you're welcome for the delegation. Thank you for all the inspiration and support!

Your delegation will go a long way!!!😍

THANK YOU for the delegation to Ladies of Hive!!!

Tulips truly are beautiful with all their vibrant colors and varieties.

I have a cousin who just buys anything on a whim, unceremoniously digs an hole, sometimes which appears inefficiant for what she is planting, drops whatever it is in the hole, crams the dirt back around it and .... Vwa-La.... up it comes and it heartily thrives ! I don't know if it is just luck or what, but it makes me think that sometimes we might over think it while trying to do things just right.

I bet with all the photos and stories of all of your beautiful yards and the such, you could make tulips grow as well as anyone.

Sorry for the late reply, I'm out of sorts!
With the passing of my dear Yorkie...
Yeah, I think that I can make tulips grow!!!
Next fall, @jacey.boldart!!!

Thank you for participating in this weeks Show us Your California contest!

Thank you @thesocalhive.
