She dwelt among the untrodden ways








          She dwelt among the untrodden ways
            Beside the springs of Dove.
          A Maid whom there were none to praise
            and very few to love;

          A violet by a mossy stone
            Half hidden from the eye!
          --Fair as a star, when only one
            Is shining in the sky.

          She lived unknown, and few could know
            When Lucy ceased to be;
          But she is in her grave, and, oh,
            The difference to me!

                           William Wordsworth

    I am flower-challenged so I have no clue.

    1. A small species tulip called 'Little Beauty'. It's my favorite of all the tulips.

    2. I have never seen one or heard of it. I didn't know there was more than one kind of tulip.

    3. Many types of tulips that bloom different times from early to late spring. Go online to John Scheeper's Bulbs to see many of them. The large silver and pink tulips I have are a Darwin Hybrid called 'Ollioules', and the orange yellow tulips are also a Darwin Hybrid, one of the 'Apeldoorn' tulips (forget which one). I only plant the types that are more likely to keep coming back year after year. The only bad part about tulips is that it is so darn cold outside during their planting time, LOL.
