Tulips in bloom

There’s nothing more beautiful than a dense bed of tulips, so last Fall I planted a couple hundred tulip bulbs in our four raised beds and then waited out a very long winter. I like tulips because they are usually the earliest to flower, and they come back each year with more blooms.  Seeing the tulip sprouts during the early Spring thaw is always a welcome sight.

And despite being ravaged by the local deer population, they are on glorious display right now.
