From The Garden: Spring Bulbs 2017

Last fall my mother and I planted 150 bulbs. I’m not exaggerating. We had so many bulbs, it was nuts. In particular, we planted special Canada Day bulbs – tulips that were red and white. Now that spring is here, we’re starting to see the first of our efforts pop up.

 

Husband said he saw someone stop in front of the house and take a picture. The red and white tulips changed colour on us and are yellow-cream and red. We may have to move them and replant.

Cherry tree is looking nice this year too.

And these are the special tulips Mom got for Canada 150.

    Gorgeous! I’m jealous of your cherry tree too. I’ve never had good luck with cherry trees. I think we might be too hot down here.

    • Thanks! We’ve had several people in the neighbourhood comment about how lovely the tulips are. We’re going to leave them in and let them multiply. It’s a mock cherry, I think. I’ve never been able to eat any fruit from it.
