Tag: Tulip ‘Couleur Cardinal’
Maybe the title is a little misleading. It’s not that we don’t have a bunch of beautiful tulips. It’s just that we don’t have as many as I feel we ought to have.
So our garden’s tulips really are at their peak now, and I can’t let the moment go without one more post.
We’ve hit the high point of Tulip season in our garden.
Oh, I ache. My back aches. My thighs ache. Even my fingers ache. Even so, I have an undeniable feeling of accomplishment, having planted approximately 370 bulbs in our garden this weekend. Just 30 to go.
Last week I placed my order for fall bulbs from John Scheeper’s. Normally I order bulbs right around Labor Day, so I was about a month later than usual. But it’s been a busy fall.
My fellow gardeners, the state of the container Tulips this year has been: AWESOME. And people who know me will tell you that I never use that word.
At the beginning of September, before we left for Japan, I ordered bulbs from John Scheepers. Partly this was out of fear that upon return I would be in a jet lagged haze, causing me to forget this essential chore. Also, I didn’t want the bulbs to arrive late in the season.
So there’s good news and bad news on the Tulip front.
