Tulip bloom

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.

  1. If you can split any of those bulbs I’d be interested in some for next spring.

      They’re still getting established this year, so its too soon to split. But they are dirt cheap at the end of the season — I think I paid $2 for a dozen.
