I've been watching the tulips from my window. Today was time to go see them. Some have opened. I want to enjoy them while they're at their peak although so far I'm only liking one variety and they're tall and big in person. The biggest I've had and I believe supposedly perennial. Most tulips will return if they don't rot or get eaten over summer. Many sources say to dig them up after the foliage dies to let them dry out, store in a cool place and replant in the fall. That's a lot of work.
|Theses are the same orange variety I bought last fall and they were beautiful. They look nothing like last years.|
|Hellebore I planted is doing well.|
|Two of three heuchera survived and growing new leaves. It's time for me to put down some sluggo before the snails and slugs start feasting. Maybe I'll do that tomorrow.|
|Lilies that it's looks like have been picked on by you know who.|
|They may be yellow irises that I thought were eaten.|
|Uncovered during the freezing temperatures but doesn't appear to have been damaged without a frost cloth.|
|That's what 22 inches of snow will do to a shrub. Don't know if she'll make it.|
