'PRETTY IN PINK'

"NOT ONE OF FLORA'S BRILLIANT RACE
A FORM MORE PERFECT CAN DISPLAY;
ART COULD NOT FEIGN MORE SIMPLE GRACE
NOR NATURE TAKE A LINE AWAY."
~ From "On Planting a Tulip~Root"
James Montgomery 1771~1854

Great shots Joey! I love Angelique tulips. They are beautiful, and have a wonderful fragrance as well!

I have some Angelique tulips, too; they are just beautiful, aren't they? They are so delicate, and before they open completely they even resemble a rose.
