Tulip Time

I was very proud of my daffodils last week because even after being frozen several nights in a row they still managed to keep their color for a few more days before giving in. On Monday, after a nice warm weekend, they were clearly on their last stems. They browned and wilted, but thankfully my white tulips made their appearance at just about the same time. These particular tulips usually only last about a week--I guess they're just very delicate! They usually croak the first sunny, warm day after they've bloomed. Thankfully, this week isn't supposed to be warm, but since it's supposed to freeze and possibly snow in the next couple of days, I'm guessing my tulips won't be around for long! I thought I'd capture a few shots of them today while they were still looking nice!

Nice pics. I love tulips. I've been wanting tulips in my garden, but I just don't know where I would put them.

Your tulips are beautiful. Go pick all of them and put them in vases before the snow gets here!
