Red Bouquet Survival

Good morning,

These wonderful tulips have survived in a very small piece of ground between our fence and driveway for 35 years.  All the rest of the row I planted so many years ago have long stopped appearing in the Spring.

Survival of the fittest for sure!

It is so wonderful to be home in the Spring to enjoy all of these flowers.

Happy Spring,
Lois

I had a half dozen or so of beautiful red tulips in my front yard that lasted long enough for the deer to find them. That was before I realized tulips make a great snack for deer.

Tough little buggers aren't they. Amazing that they keep on going.

Nice to have something you planted so long ago still producing. I really wish tulips and daffodils would survive our winters, but I make do with bunches of them from the store.
