Yesterday, Eldest Daughter calls, all squealy and excited. 'Mom! My tulips, they are poking up through the mulch!', she cried. These are the tulips we planted last fall on my trip to Philly to see her new digs.
What prompted her to check on afore-mentioned tulips was a call from her younger sister, bespeaking of her own tulips, showing foliage.
I have raised Gardeners!
I am so proud.
Now...for something completely different...I feel the need to address some of yesterday's comments.
Lynne-sometimes newly planted rhizomes need re-seating. That freeze-thaw cycle may heave them out. Keep the good thoughts. Not all make it all the time.
Wunx~-the kittie girls have only been interested in the ends before they are woven in. They are such old lady kitties.
And to my wonderful, supportive sisters...about my filling all my baskets...blah blah blah! You're just jealous.
