Tulips are such fun. They are a bit slow coming this year, what with all the rain and cold here in Seattle, so this is from an earlier year. But soon we will see them! I learned recently from gardening expert Ciscoe Morris that if you plant them in your garden and want to leave them in the ground, plant them deep, which I knew, but do not plant things over them that you will water during the summer. They must stay dry in the summer, otherwise they will rot. That explains a lot. Now I just have to think of a place to plant some where I will not want to put in anything over them that will need water. Hmmm.
