Apr 12/10 Coming Soon

Apr 12/10 Coming Soon, originally uploaded by susanvg.

In this all too early spring, the tulips are poking their heads through the leaves. And my garden has a northern exposure with growth slower than the sunnier side. I have seen tulips that are open wide. Our temperatures are back down to about seasonal which means possibilities of frost. The hardy tulips will survive, but the delicate blossoms that are emerging too soon may not. Climate change has its challenges.

  1. Hi Susan, I'm happy to report that my Daffs are up here in Denver and one Tulip - did the squirrels eat the rest? We are always in danger of frost, too, but even in the mountains temps have been unseasonably warm. (With snow still on the ground - no spring blooming there as yet!)
