That’s not really a genus or a family but, they do look cute peeking through the iron gate. ~Vic

Nice. I like tulips.
They are sweet things. Unfortunately, deer love them, too. I’ve lost too many.

Too bad. Do they come back? We have bulbs that my mother-in-law planted years ago. They grow into spectacular flowers, then die off every year, then come back, year after year. It’s amazing how hardy bulbs can be.
Sure. They come back with bulbs. But, if said deer eat the flowers and pull the bulbs out…bye-bye flowers for good. They don’t seem to be interested in our Narcissus or Irises. All the Tulips I planted, they ate the blooming flowers, then the stems, then the bulbs. They also love to mow down on the white/green Hosta. They won’t touch the yellow/green Hosta. They don’t mess with my shamrocks, my mums, the Azaleas, my Coleus or my other plant…that the name escapes me at the moment…
Hmm, sounds like your neighborhood deer are finicky flower eaters.
I guess they like what they like. Speaking of, they REALLY like my neighbor’s Mulberry tree.
Maybe it’s best to just grow plants natural to the local environment. Then you don’t have to worry about watering them, or deers ruining them.
I’m not entirely sure what is natural to the local environment. This state had three of the oldest colonies in the “new world.” Prior to the Europeans washing ashore, the area was all Native American. There aren’t many of them left around to ask what is “natural.” As far as I know, there were around five separate tribes that were in this area and the majority of them were dragged off to Oklahoma.
Case in point, a block away, a lady grows Forsythia bushes. Those things aren’t native to the US.
Much has been lost to memory of the years, that’s true.
And, it is so sad. Even conventional literature of this area is based on European knowledge, not what the natives knew.
It is sad. I think the natives took most of their secrets to the grave.
They did, much of it lost with those dying on the Trail of Tears. I’m quite sure that most of their culture has been decimated even on The Res. Originally polytheists, the Church got a-hold of them and their kids. They lost their languages.
Ken donates to:
In Montana but, it’s Catholic-based. We both have NA blood and he wants to help. It’s a bit misguided but, his heart is in the right place.
Speaking of, have you ever seen “Longmire?”
Oh yeah, their culture has changed dramatically from 200 years ago.
Yes, I’ve seen the entire series. Loved it.
Fall Tulips…how cool is THAT!!!
Oh! No. LOL! That picture was taken in April 2019.
Is there such a thing as fall Tulips? I know we have Azaleas around here blooming NOW.
Yes, I think there are. And Crocus and possibly other spring bulbs.
Ah! Good point. I’ve seen pix of Crocus blooming with snow on them.
Yes, and sometimes grape hyacinth
Cool tulips…they look cool against the gate.
I thought the same thing. Sometimes, I see the artwork around me and I just want to capture it.
Well you did a good job there!
Tank you, tank you! 😀
They seem to be saying “Let us out!”
Yes they do. Poor little jailbirds…
