Did you hear me squeal with delight?
Tulips are popping up all over the garden. They won’t flower for a little while, but the fact that they’ve survived this long (shh…don’t tip off the squirrels) is amazing.
Last fall I planted three varieties, purchased at a local garden center. They are all sourced from Van Zyverden.
- 15 Tulip ‘Angélique‘
- 15 Tulip ‘Attila‘; and
- 5 Tulip ‘Passionale‘
In other words, the potential for 35 stunning acts of nature. Guess what? I counted over twenty, ground-breaking bulbs! The last time I planted tulips, nothing came up. Zip. Zero. Nada. I’m really liking these odds.
While I had my nose to the earth, I noticed several more bulbs breaking through: Crocus, Narcissus and a few others, to-be-determined when they bloom.
Oh happy day! What’s ‘cooking’ in your garden this Thursday?
