My dazzling tulips are having their annual ‘Spring Fling’ in my garden. I must admit, I wasn’t sure how many of the tulips I planted (see post here http://www.thegracefulgardener.com/?p=3336) would be participating in my ‘Spring Fling.’ Not to my surprise, the deer decided to have a party of their own this year by eating many of my tulip buds as their gourmet main course! (Note to self: Next year put out deer repellant in February not March.)
However, lucky for me I planted around 1200 tulips, 650 were gobbled up by the deer, but that still left me with several hundred to share with you. Even though my tulip blossoms are fleeting- many blooms just lasting a few weeks- it’s still something I look forward to every year in my garden.
Here’s a peek…..
