Alison’s Garden: Springtime in Vermont

As far as flowers go it’s still early spring in Vermont.  I’ve got a few daffodils holding their heads up high, but tulips are the main attraction lately.  I’ve never planted a single tulip bulb in the 7 years we’ve been in our house, but year after year they keep on blooming.  I consider myself lucky!

Here are a few tulips in my Vermont garden this week…

A couple of my favorite things about tulips are that they open during the day when the sun is shining and they close up their petals at night AND when you cut fresh tulips and put them in a vase they will continue to grow.  Have you ever noticed tulips getting taller after you’ve cut them?  I suggest clear, fresh water without any preservatives for maximum vase life for tulips.
