Look Whats Blooming In My Garden This Week


My Parrot Tulips are in full bloom this week and I absolutely love them.
 

I am just a little torn - do I create a quilt pattern for this or a needle-felting pattern; maybe I will have to create both and then decide which one to make the pattern out of.....

As stated in Better Homes and Gardens Plant Encyclopedia:

Tulip, parrot hybrids


Tulipa selections
 
Parrot tulips are flamboyant with their curly, twisted, and fringed petals that resemble the colorful feathers of the tropical bird of the same name. However, their beak-shape buds are what earned them their moniker. Nearly all varieties of parrot tulip are vibrantly colored, and many are two-toned.
Parrot tulips bloom mid- to late season on stems ranging from 12 to 28 inches tall. Their huge blooms do not stand up well in windstorms or rain, so plant them in a sheltered location.
