These are the purple tulips I planted in the fall, at least they were supposed to be purple. I know I'm not the only one this happened to, Sherry, from Sherry's Zoo and Gardens had red tulips instead of pink coming up in her garden. At least these are in the backyard garden and it really doesn't matter there.
I took this picture just a couple of hours after the first one. I couldn't believe how quickly they opened.
Thankfully, this cluster of tulips all turned out to be purple.
I'm having a few new visitors here at Robin's Nesting Place; the Common Grackle is enjoying the peanuts and the birdbath.
The brown-headed cowbird also stopped by for a visit and a bath.
I was sitting out on the patio, in the swing, watching Libby attack the chair leg. She loves this game and I love watching her play it.
The weather has been gorgeous the last few days, but I've not been out working because I've had other projects going on. Now that I've pretty much finished those, we have rain in the forecast for several days. Bummer! I've got quite a few of my seedlings outside hardening off. Now I just need to get outside and get them planted.
