Ignore the high temperatures, my dears, and completely immerse yourself in tulips. Submerge yourself, indulge yourself, intoxicate yourself, hypnotize-mesmerize-saturate-bathe yourself if you must, in tulips. If the images in the slide show below don't do it, I don't know what will.
Last spring John Scheepers Catalog was my go-to source for wholesale tulip bulbs and the personalized blends I would whip up for mine and others' spring show. But sometimes in the past, and again this year, I decided to not only blend tulip varieties, but to blend BLENDS ala COLORBLENDS as well. If you need inspiration, look at the various tulip palettes and color notes I selected over the seasons.
If you are inclined to be a tulip voyeur, take a peek at at my order for the spring of 2012. The amaryllis are for Christmas, of course. Maybe placing your order will distract you from the 108 degree swelter today.
