Each spring I wait in eager anticipation for the 1,000+ tulip bulbs planted around Elizabeth Moyer’s Rye, New York home to bloom. Elizabeth is the author of the aptly named blog, Pretty Pink Tulips, and for the last 10 years her signature spring tulips have been a beloved Moyer family tradition. As the name of her blog suggests, Elizabeth always plants pink tulips, and usually they are light pink. This year she decided to mix things up by planting fringed hot pink “Burgandy Lace” tulips… What a surprise when they popped up red! Next year Elizabeth will return to pale pink, but the red is certainly spectacular.
I was also excited to see Elizabeth’s tulips and her “Tulip Party” featured this month in Better Homes & Gardens! Congratulations, Elizabeth, you are such an inspiration!
