African Tulips

Mother Nature has been dotting my driveway with giant orange confetti! I just had to show you the blooms from the beautiful African Tulip Tree [Chad thought he was the reason for the photo shoot!]
We are always surprised by their arrival, because they bloom way up in the sky where we can hardly see them - until they fall.That delicious bright orange made me feel all lighthearted and I decided to play!And play...

Wow, I've never heard of the African tulip and I cannot imagine why, when they look like this and make for such fabulous pics and decor. Thanks for the link with more info. Can I mention it on mine?

Wonderful tree and tulips. Love the colour! We can buy tulips that look like the African Tulips from your tree.

I had never heard of the tree before.

I love that you play! We should all play more often!

I drove past a huge display of orange cannas today and thought of you - you and orange have certainly made your mark (-:
