Saturday Snapshot -- Tulips

To participate in the Saturday Snapshot meme post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) have taken then leave a direct link to your post on Alyce's blog At Home With Books. Photos can be old or new, and be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. Please don’t post random photos that you find online.
In my small town, there's a woman whose entire yard is taken up by tulips. She has no room for grass. It looks like she has a bumper crop this year. 
I make sure I walk by her house in the spring time to keep track of the tulips' progress.

This year she also added some creeping phlox and small bushes of  yellow flowers as borders. I love creeping phlox. Her flowers are also taking over her backyard.

I hope you get the time to stop and smell the flowers this weekend.

I don't think I've seen that yard. I'll have to keep an eye out for it - it looks very pretty!

The flowers are gorgeous....and I would love to walk by them everyday!

Thanks for visiting my blog.

Amazing. What does her yard look like after the blooms fade?

Just gorgeous!

I was going to ask that same question... what does she plant after the tulips fade? They are gorgeous now but later? I'm going to guess the summer perennials will be up soon.

How special! It must be so fun to watch as they all come into bloom.

These are beautiful! We only have brown, some places still snow left, but mostly melted now. Thanks for these gorgeous pics!

White tulips are my favourite - they're so ethereally beautiful to me. Anyway, lovely photos!

How beautiful! A friend just spent the morning at someone's house who had planted 5500 tulips! I was stunned to hear that number. Yours look much more manageable! ;-)
