To my surprised most tulips appear as last year. The daffodils being in their year two bloomed way earlier than the tulips and are not as sharp looking as a week ago.
This morning we woke up to 28F. Frost and sad looking tulips. But the day turned around with temperatures in the low fifties and by afternoon the tulip border was glorious!
|Tulips at 8:00am and 28F|
|Tulips at 1:00pm and 52F|
|The tulips border: red is Darwin "Apeldoorn", pink/orange is Darwin "Apricot Impression" and the yellow/orange Darwin "Daydream"|
Other flowers are in bloom right now:
|Yellow Trout Lily or Dog tooth violets (Erythronium americanum) - wild flower|
