Bloomin' TULIP TREE

In my backyard I have a tulip TREE. It only blooms once a year and after it blooms , the flowers fall off and it is a horrible mess, but its worth it , that one time in February when it blooms. Its not completely opened up yet, I'll put another picture up in a week or so when it completely opens up. double click on the picture for a closer look.


Every one of these green pods will open up and have a beautiful hot pink bloom.
This is what I see when I look at my skylites in my kitchen.

When all the blooms fall off, leaves come on and it makes a real nice shade for the yard.
Listen to my coordinating music...Yep the name of the song is "Tulip Trees"

I got a tuliup tree for my birthday a couple years ago. It's still just a little stick. I can't wait until it looks like yours!!

Hi Glenda! That tree is beautiful! Hot pink is my favorite color. You'll have to post pics as it blooms!

Happy Friday (early!)

I'm jealous of your tulip tree! My tree barely has life! Never mind gorgeous blooms like yours! I guess I'll just enjoy your pics and be grateful for the nice days we have right now! Thanks for stopping by.
