tulips in bloom

Suddenly the tulips have burst into bloom. I did buy a box of assorted tulip bulbs but only this variety is blooming and they weren't named varieties so I don't know what this one is.

I think these truffle bottles are a great size and shape for forcing tulips indoors. Unfortunately I can't get hold of any more. They're very sought-after on ebay.

The clear vases to the left are a pretty good size and shape as well (more visible above).









All the flowers of this variety of tulip wilted before they bloomed. I'll have to double-check the package to see if they did name the varieties.
