RED TULIPS - 2016
This was the first year that the Gardens at Waters East grew red
tulips.Tulips here can be a
problem because of all the deer that roam around the area – those deer love
tulips!You will notice that an
“artistic” barrier was design to help protect the tulips and it worked!The barrier is in the same style as the
entry gate for the Asian Patio Garden which is to the right of the tulips.
Here is a photo series of those
tulips from the point of emerging from the soil to the final day of
blooming.As of today, they are now
cut back leaving only the leaves to regenerate the bulbs for next year.
Enjoy the RED
