Hi again Mary,
Yesterday was the first day my tulips opened up. Only three of the 5 varieties are blooming so far.
First is the yellow T. Hocus Pocus
Next is the yellow and green T. Virilemon
And then the bright red parrot T. Bright Parrot. It certainly is bright. It is at the top of the post also.
The Allium I also ordered from Brent and Becky's is up and has buds but doesn't look as if it will bloom soon. The T. Maureen is also up and will be a few days yet before it blooms. It is not showing any color on the buds at all.
So far the chicken wire, the wire fence and the electric fence are keeping the deer, woodchucks, and other critters from lunching on the flower buds. Here's hoping!
