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.

ADDENDUM FALL 2018: 

The digital versions of Volume One within the Words In Our Beak book series that are mentioned in this entry may only remain available for a limited time, but hardcover versions of Volume One, Two and Three can now be found wherever books are sold.


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.
