Here is my first tulip bud in the garden this spring.
You can see my local critters have been snacking on the them as they come up.
We'll see what survives!
These tulips were planted a few years ago in front of my office building. They rotate planting seasonally, so when they pulled the bulbs, the grounds folks encouraged us to take them home. Otherwise, they would have been mulched up and never seen again. So this is year three on these recycled tulips and they make me smile every time another one pops.
BTW, it was 84 degrees and sunny today...in April...Amen!
