My first tulip of the year has bloomed. It is my favorite of all my garden flowers. The other tulips are pretty and the daffodils bring a smile to my face, but this salmon colored tulip is the best! Each year I fear that it will not return as it grows in a rather vulnerable garden spot. Maybe this year I will finally dig it up and move it to a safer location.
My little grape hyacinths are showing now too, along with some dog-tooth violets that I'm not sure I ever noticed before. The garden under my kitchen window will soon be full of columbines and lilies of the valley. Spring is so much fun!
