I don't know if these Kees Nelis tulips will make it far into spring, but the Dutch Iris certainly will!

No it's not, it's just one of MANY superb shots!

Luzy, I'm VERY impressed with what you and your camera can do, and fast becoming motivated to learn to use mine properly!

Wow, thank you, thank you :oops: :oops:

I am really happy with these - I bought 30 and scattered them in that garden (the rest are off to the left). But the bestest thing is that I can see them from our kitchen table... if I get up to see around a camellia that's in the way... :roll: But they 'glow' really well - when there's sunshine in Melbourne.

And I didn't get a wet belly, Pam :lol: :lol: that's one of the terraced gardens - right near the front steps. It's the other side that I will get a wet belly from - oh, unless I mow, of course???!?!?!

Midgin, you're very kind...

By the time the tulips are over, the Dutch iris (blue) should be out along with the dianthus (crimson). Then when the Dutch iris are going, the white bearded iris should (hopefully) flower, with the yellow rose maybe starting. Along with the Pineapple sage again - I'm getting dizzy. It can be whatever it wants! :lol: :lol:

(Not much chance of mowing, either, Pam - got to lift the mower up to that terrace, so I figure it might be easier to get rid of the lawn...???)
