This is my "big" bed of tulips and in this spot 50 are coming up. That sounds like a lot, but it's really not although it will be a nice burst of color when they bloom. I planted these on Oct 10 of last year, and it appears that every single one of them has come up! What's amazing to me is that the four feet of solid ice piled on this spot only just melted about a week and a half ago, so all this has happened in a very short period of time. I had to put one of those tacky little wire fence borders around it to keep my darling boy from trampling them until he learns to stay out of the flowerbeds. :)
Here's what it looked like when they were planted:
Also, now the crocus are blooming! They started blooming on Saturday and have been such a sweet little blast of color at the end of the driveway.
