I had to go out this afternoon to water the newbies --any soil moisture is quickly gone in this heat. (All my moisture ends up on the outside, dripping down my face.) It's a few degrees cooler than yesterday, and some high clouds have moved in, so it seemed like a good time to capture a few of the later-blooming tulips --they'll probably be shriveled up by tomorrow.
These little pink and yellow ones are similar to my species tulips, and of course I don't remember what they are called. They've carpeted underneath the birch tree.
This group of species tulips was supposed to be all one color, I think, but both colors are so bright and glowing.
