T.G.I.F! (As In Thank God It's Flowers!)


Cam, the cardinal in the photograph directly above, can be seen gazing upon a tulip known as Firesprays, which grow in my urban (NYCgarden.

In her book, "Words In Our Beak Volume One" (pictured below)...


... Cam discusses this tulip type. She also includes information regarding the other tulip varieties that I've grown here.

These include the following:

Kauffmaniana
Parrot Blumex
Monsella Type A
Monsella Type B
Snow Parrot
Curly Sue
Honey Rag
Doberman
Estella Rijnveld
Peacock
Tarda
Couleur Cordial

This season I have a few new tulip types growing here. These include a variety that is called Stunning Apricot. I get the "stunning" aspect of the name, but I must confess its color looks more pink than apricot to me.



One of the other newcomers is known by the name Flaming Parrot and images of it can be seen below.





I am saddened that Cam is not here to enjoy this tulip type, but I know she would appreciate that a member of the avian community is included in the newbie's name! If you enjoy the tulips featured here, I encourage you to buy Cam's book. "Words In Our Beak Volume One," offers its readers useful information on all the tulip types (except for the last two as they only bloomed this season), that are included in this entry; as well as facts about a number of other flowers, trees, vines, shrubs.; and of course birds. 

Btw, I now have rendered a number of my images of flora and fauna into postcards. Check them out on my web-site.

FALL 2018 ADDENDUM: 

I no longer actively produce event program covers, invitations and the types of greeting cards described here or on my website but arrangements might be able to be made under certain circumstances. My focus is on the Words In Our Beak book series, pictured below...

WORDS IN OUR BEAK BOOK SERIES

...whose stories are told from the point of view of Cam, a female cardinal, whose photo is on the cover of each book. Words In Our Beak’s goal is to open readers to a simple understanding of the winged world and their environment. Set in my rooftop urban garden in New York City. Words In Our Beak is directed to children and adults who are curious about birds, and want to learn about them from a unique perspective. The books include hundreds of images of flora and fauna, links to movies, as well as to informative narratives that have been created by the author.

Please click here to go to my blog post that provides details as to where you can get these books.

Additionally, I have rendered some images from these books into other formats and they are available via Fine Art America (FAA). Some of my other photographs (Black & White Collection, Kaleidoscopic Images and the famous Mandarin duck who visited NYC) can also be found on my FAA pages.
