Saturday Snapshot -- Tulips

West Metro Mommy Reads
Every year around this time, I need to share a photo of the tulips blooming in a yard near our neighborhood.
The gardener here has a fabulous display of tulips.
That's some creeping phlox there at the front. I'm not sure what the yellow flowers are, but I'm glad she's diversifying. As much as I love tulips, I hate the way they look after the blooms are gone. 
I imagine sitting on that porch during the spring and seeing all those colorful tulips. Lovely.

Tulips are wonderful, she must love them, it would be wonderful sitting in that porch- and it's wonderful for everyone going past too.

I love tulips! I'd plant some but, like you, I hate how they look once the bloom is gone....

Your flowers are gorgeous! The tulips are lovely...and reminds me once again that I need to plant some. I just don't seem to get that done.

Here is my Saturday Snapshot.

We rent and aren't allowed to plant flowers. It's nice then that every year, tulips blossom in the front. In the back, we get daylilies and peonies, which I also like.
