Tulips Blooming - Spring 2018
After a long, cold early Spring, we finally have some color popping up in the #newoldbackyard. However....I only count 24 of them, though. (I planted 30 tulips last fall.) I also posted about these very tulips emerging for the first time earlier this year. They're located along the fenceline largely because that's where we had available space last fall because the area in front of them was lawn. But, as you can see in the photo above, we expanded the bed (and relocated the Automower boundary wire), so this fall I'm planning on relocating these bulbs from the fence to the front of the bed.
Also, interesting, is the blue-ish flower growing behind the bulbs. Our neighbors have it running in their beds and it has crept across the fence. I'm pretty sure it is Virginia Bluebells, and it is quite striking, so I'm not unhappy about it migrating northwards. I'll keep an eye on them this Spring and perhaps if they continue to creep, they deserve their own post here on the [garden diary].
