‘Amazing Grace’ Double Tulips AND ‘Copper Image’ Double Tulips? DREAMY!

It's that time again! It's time to take a closer look at one of the varieties of tulip that are blooming this year. This time we're technically taking a look at a "collection". I ordered this 'Peony Party Collection' from Dutch Grown last year. They definitely did not disappoint! The collection consisted of two types…

April Garden Update: Flowers are Blooming!

I realize it has been several weeks since the last time I posted any kind of update. The fact of the matter is, I've just been really focused on making sure that I got all the photos and video that I needed for other content. Though the concept of taking pictures of flowers is really…

Spring Apricot Flower Arrangement with Tulips and Daffodils

Ah, yes. Now that the daffodils and tulips are in full bloom, I can't help but feel like it's finally the start of the growing season. That also means that it's time to start making flower arrangements. Here's a quick look at another one that I recently put together using only daffodils and tulips. Unfortunately,…

My New Favorite Pink: La Vie Double Tulips

Anyone who's been following along here on the blog or on YouTube, will know that I absolutely love pink flowers. More specifically, I love planting anything that straddles the line between pink and salmon. It was certainly no exception when I picked 'La Vie' double tulips to grow this spring.

‘Mt. Tacoma’ and ‘Angelique’ Double Tulips: The Perfect Match

In life, there are just certain things that seem as if they were almost destined to belong together. Like peanut butter and jelly, for example. Sure, they're great individually; but mix them together - and something magical happens. In my opinion, the same is also true when the 'Mt. Tacoma' and 'Angelique' tulips begin blooming…

The First Flower Arrangement of the Season

Things this spring have been totally hectic. I've been trying to stay on track, but it seems that nearly everything is unpredictable. After massive losses of plants in the hoop house over winter, I'm just looking forward to a few weeks of beautiful tulips. The base of this flower arrangement is 'Silk Road' variety of…

‘Silk Road’ Tulips: The First in Bloom this Spring!

One of the main reasons that I started blogging and making videos, doesn't even really have anything to do with wanting to teach people to grow things. I was SO TIRED of seed catalogs. Seriously, I would plant something based on the photo, and the plant wouldn't look anything like it! I wanted to create…

My First Foray into Split Corona Daffodils

I'm definitely not a stranger to daffodils. In fact, daffodil bulbs were one of the first garden-related investments that I ever made. Roughly five years ago, I bought a huge bag of mixed daffs. In that bag, there were a few doubles and a couple smaller flowered jonquil types - but generally nothing fancy. Enter…

Harvesting Daffodils for Cut Flowers in a Vase

Can you believe that I've been doing this blog thing for 5 years now? In fact, one of the very first posts that I ever made was about using daffodils as cut flowers. You can see it by clicking here.  I'm happy to say that those original daffodil bulbs are still producing flowers. That's one…
