I've always loved red tulips, even though they're not very useful, at least from an ecological perspective, in their domesticated form.
But, they were one of the first things I planted (in front of a white picket fence) as a beginning gardener. I think I planted them in a triangle, not knowing much about design. Domesticated tulips don't attract insects, have a nice scent, or last long in our warm climate, but they're certainly lovely.
Tulips (or cyclamens) have been our Valentine's Day flowers for many years. The morning light was lovely on this year's flowers.
Happy Valentine's Day!
