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!

Thank you, Elizabeth, for creating and sharing such beauty!
Thank you for sharing! So beautiful and I just subscribed! Your blog posts are always such a breadth of fresh air – thank you!
Thank you for this posting. I love tulips and they are the flower that introduced me to my now husband.
A prominent LA antique dealer and her husband closed up shop and moved to Maine in the late 1980’s. They had a wonderful antique house near Damariscotta where they planted thousands and thousands of tulips every year. It was often photographed in Down East Magazine. It was truly amazing…
This is such a lovely, classic colonial house. I wish more of them were being built today.
Thank you for this truly fabulous and gracious feature, Andrea!!!! I am blushing!!! 🙂 I’m so happy that you and others enjoy the brief inspiration the tulips provide each year! As you know…back to pink next year, but I’m happy to say that my white and pink tulips are blooming in my backyard!! I’ll post some images on Insta tomorrow for Tulip Tuesday!
Have a wonderful day down south!!!
