Floral Fridays: Tulipa 'Apricot Parrot'
It is always a momentous occasion when the tulip bulbs planted the previous autumn emerge and flower for the first time. Flamboyantly colored and ruffled, parrot tulips have a regal magnificence that deserves a place inside where their color gradations and markings can be admired. In the fading afternoon light, the painterly stripes of 'Apricot Parrot' glow with such warmth that one easily succumbs to its beauty. ~ Eric
