Finally TULIPS!

I’ve been waiting for color in my garden, but this year it seems to have taken forever.

Plants are slow to bloom in the country. Many of my city friends have had tulips and other blooms for weeks–this is usual. Things are warmer when houses are closer together. But it seems that even their flowers were slower to appear this year. Our winter was just wicked and hung on too long.

These early beauties are on the south side of our house. They are kissed by the sun first. In other parts of the yard, it will take a little longer to show their colors.

I’m happy with these first blooms. Yellow is my favorite color, well, it is until more flowers show off their blooms. Everyone is special as it decorates the land and brightens our days.
