Grandma's Special Rose On A Ruby Tuesday
Grandma Vina Belle (Crockett) Vanderveer
this wonderful Lady was the one that created the Garden to which the site is dedicated
This is the Vini Vanderveer Tulip. I created this tulip by propagating a Parrot and a Darwin. At the moment it is unique, as it is a one of kind. Or at least I hope so. I tried to create one for my Grandmother after I took over her Vegetable Garden. Grandma went to the seniors home with Dementia.
With a few attempts one took hold and this was it. It took four years to even bloom from seed. So I had no idea what it would be like. That year I did some home expansion and it had to be moved too early. So another 3 years and this is that time.
I understand that this may be already out there some where, if so that is okay. But this one tulip is one I created for my Grandma. Original or not it is for her.
Here it is open and I think it is wonderful
Happy Ruby Tuesday everyone from reg...
