Okay, I’m kind of obsessed with my tulips this year, simply because last year the deer ate them all as they were starting to pop up. This year we thought the same thing had happened, but I’m happy to say that most of the tulips did survive. The purple tulips and the yellow/orange swirly tulips bloomed later than I thought they would. Yay again!
We had a pretty nice tulip crop, with about 20 bunches similar to the one pictured at right. I was going to cut them to bring in the house but they looked so pretty outside that I couldn’t bring myself to do it. We had white, yellow, orange, purple and only two red tulips. Now they are fading and all the other perennials are starting to come up, so my next big project is to weed and compost the flower garden and get the herb garden in shape. It never ends….
Isn’t this the prettiest tulip you’ve ever seen???
