Tulip, Ready to Bloom

(Toledo, OH) The cold spring rains of the past two days did not deter this tulip from progressing toward a full blossom, though it will probably be tomorrow before this first tulip opens all the way.

After planting hundreds of bulbs last fall - and bribing the squirrels with bird seed to keep them away from the bulbs - we look forward to the arrival of an avalanche of color. We already have a few dozen yellow daffodils brightening up the yard, but nothing beats tulips for sheer beauty.
