Parrots in the Garden

Categories: Macro and Plants.

I’ve got parrots in the garden … not real parrots because we don’t live in the right climate … but parrot tulips.  Parrot tulips are known for their colourful, curly, fringed petals that perhaps resemble parrot feathers.  They have gorgeous colour combinations.  These are the tulips that I grew in pots this year and I have been really pleased with the results.

Enjoy!

The buds are like parrot beaks and that is where their name comes from.
