Our tulips are blooming... yahoooooooo!!!

They are up!  They are bright!  They are stunning!  This year we are offering over a dozen varieties of tulips.  Several of our first ones are in the yellow and orange tones.  Just what we need to kick start spring and remind us that winter is over.

It is amazing how quickly the tulips decide to "color up" once we have a few warm days in a row.  It is almost hard to keep up with them.  I have days when I pull tulips out of the gardens several times a day. Also, to make sure the blooms will be their best, I make sure they are well-watered when it is dry, as it has been, so these lovely babies are fully hydrated when it is time to cut.
