There had to be at least one.
It’s probably the last one of the season. In fact, it’s so late in the season, normally all the tulips would be done and gone by now … but it’s been a slow, chilly spring. It seems some of the flowers are trying to catch up.
The leaves on the lilacs, for example, opened today whereas usually they would have bloomed in the first or second week of May. They are always in bloom for Mother’s day … but not this year.
So here is the prettiest pink tulip I’ve ever seen in our garden. It is spring incarnate, is it not?
