After an Amazing Season's Performance...

...these tulips are now finally on their last legs, so I had to feature them once more. Truly, no flower in the garden has impressed me more than these spectacularly long-lasting tulips. (OK, there's one that ties, and it ties across several seasons: Rick mistakes the columbines for weeds, so they get pulled. And then each spring they COME BACK. That, too is persistence on a grand scale. This year they WILL get to bloom!) Today, though, is getting very windy, so I don't expect these precarious petals to cling for terribly much longer.
