Several times in the past 2 weeks, I have stopped to admire the tulips in my garden. The flowers are larger, the leaves are larger, the stems are longer! I know it’s not my imagination. I remember some springs where a particular group of tulips near my sidewalk, barely bloomed- the size of a golf ball- and then dropped their petals within a couple of day.
I think the red tulip in the foreground is a lily flowered tulip. The flower is larger than most of the other tulips and it is my favorite! (If I am wrong about that, please let me know.)
I will have to plant more of these next year.
