Parkway Area Tulip Tips Emerging For First Time - March 2022
Last Fall, I planted a variety of Spring bulbs in beds like I've done over the years. I posted some photos and details of the various Allium that I planted, but I don't seem to have shared the details of the tulip bulbs that I also put in at the same time. The problem with that is that I'm TOTALLY unsure of where I put all of the bulbs. It appears - based on some photos I've found in Google Photos that I put in 100 Tulip bulbs. See below for the photos - showing two bags from Longfield Gardens:
First, around the Norway Maple tree in the parkway. I don't know now many bulbs are here, but I remember planting them on the slope, down close to the curb. And that's where I'm seeing these redish tiny tips peeking through the mulch this past weekend:
Here, below, is a further-out shot for context. These are to the left (facing the house) and below the tree trunk in the mulch ring around the Norway Maple. You have to look closely, but if you see the little spot of mulch that looks disturbed near the middle, that's where these tulips are emerging.
And, below, is a further-out shot for context showing the edge of the driveway on the left of the photo. You can see the tulip tips in the bottom right of the photo above the maple leaf.
