Thumbs up for Tulips
So despite a four-day cold snap just when my spring bulbs were really starting to bloom like crazy, my tulips have survived. They're even starting to flourish, and not all of them have opened yet.
These were the first. I think they're Toronto Greigii (low growing)
This one is my favorite of all the tulips I planted. I love the color. I definitely need to buy more of these this fall.
And although I expected more orange in these tulips, they look pretty, especially with the grape hyacinths. When they first came up I thought something had gone terribly wrong, but then I remembered these were the awesome orange and yellow tulips I'd been wondering about.
Although daffodils are still my favorite bulbs, tulips are definitely gaining points this year. Their blooming period definitely feels longer.
