spring tulips


To remind myself that it still IS spring, even though recent night temperatures have approached the low 20’s, I thought I would post this picture of our tulips (and dandelions). But I can tell you this picture isn’t nearly as good as those I pretended to take a few days ago…

  1. Probably where you are they aren’t so tough. If it is going to be under freezing, I would definitely cover them with sheets or buckets, or bring them inside. We covered ours when it is was 25 and everything was fine. But it was 15 last night and there isn’t much you can do at that point. Our entire yard looks dead.

  2. Just an update – I had covered my flowers and brought the only two pots that I have into the garage. I took off the covers yesterday and they seem to all have survived nicely! Now I’m concerned about the 4 new shrubs that we planted that I did not cover. They look okay, but who knows. Thanks for your advice!
