Another weekend, another storm. SO ready for spring!!!
OK that's it! I've had it! All my life in New England I should be used to winter. Being older now I seem to enjoy complaining more and more..............but there's hope!
Actually, to my surprise, I noticed yesterday that some tulips are about an inch high! These are just cheap-o box store tulips I bought for some early color three years ago during the construction in a bed that I hadn't decided on yet as to what I wanted there, so I figured they would be throwaways. I didn't even expect them to come back, but this will be the third spring for them and they look strong and healthy. Last year the were perfect. On the other hand, the fairly expensive Red Riding Hood tulips I planted at the same time, in a permanent bed, barely came back the second year. Most were no-shows or deformed with what looked like a viral infection of some kind. I doubt that any at all will reappear this year.
