Striped tulips and colorful hens

Just a quick shot of the new tulip hybrid that seems to be successfully naturalizing here in Carteret.  Usually our standard tulips live only one year.  These are flowering for the second time, and have multiplied already.  I really like the pointed flower petals and pink stripes.   Another colorful addition to the yard:  Louise, Hilda, and Pauline, free ranging on the spring grass.
