Two seasons ago I planted tulip bulbs for the very first time. I was a little nervous that I wouldn’t bury them as the right depth, I’d plant them too close together, or worse, I would drown or starve them before they had a chance to grow. Much to my delight, I am now experiencing my second spring with a beautiful row of tulips that say good morning to me everyday right outside my office window.

I am pretty darn proud of my crop of tulips, proud enough that this fall I will probably dig up and gently separate the bulbs so I can have even more! Greedy I know! ;-) I plan to add at least a second row, and possibly a third to the front bed. I may plant some around the tree in the center of my front yard too.
So enough jibber jabber. Just wanted to share my pictures, a little slice of my yard. Seems like we waited forever for spring this year, so I am enjoying it as long as I can!
My tulips are guarded by this awesome wire/rock bird I found at a garage sale. Isn’t he the coolest??
