I planted these large white tulips 35 or so years ago and had to move them once when we had a water line break. I had just an hour to run out to the front garden and save what I could. Fortunately, I was able to lift, thus save these beauties and many more like them.
It's amusing that there are a few in the middle of the yard where they got placed when soil was filled into the trench after the water line repair. Those were ones I didn't find to lift, but managed to survive anyway. Catherine carefully cuts around them when she mows the grass early in the season (she'll laugh when she sees this.) It's fun to see them out in the middle of the lawn.
