Tip toe thru my tulips - and more '08
« on: April 28, 2008, 12:21:00 am »
Well spring's in full bloom, even up here in the Great White North.

Flowers are in full bloom. Counted 60 tulips a couple a days ago. Missed out on at least one type of daffies this year, cause a my Manitoba trip.

Got a couple a requests to start up posting pics from my garden again this year. Thought it'd be best to start up a new thread. Gonna take some pics tomorrow morning, weather permitting.

So stay tuned ...

Wilco Roger Lee. You'll find a whole new thread about that in this forum.

It's raining today and cold (8C, 46F), so the tulips are not 'open'. Still it's a good look. Most of the daffies are beyond their prime so I'll have to pass on (most) of them this year.

Let's just start with a bit of a blaze of tulips while the rain has temporarily paused, hunh?

Was cold all day today but sunny. Still the tulips didn't 'open up' any better than they had yesterday, so I'm posting yet another picture of closed tulips - photo taken yesterday. I did however get to work about 90 minutes in the garden today. Was hoping to plant some pansies in the bed nearest the sidewalk but alas, the bed's not sufficiently ready yet.
