From the garden: Tulips and Peonies

These were from my garden this year.  The double tulips are angelique tulips -- they almost look like peonies.  Not sure what the spiky ones are -- I buy bags of bulbs from Home Depot and by the time they come up the following spring, I find I don't remember what I bought or exactly where I might have planted them.
This is from my tree peony, which gave me four blooms this year -- a record for this plant. Last year, nada.  I bought the bottle at an extremely organized junk shop in Red Hook.  I like using the old bottles -- they have nice shapes/proportions.
