I planted tulips for the first time this past Autumn. It was a dark, rainy, grey day, windy, blustery and cold. And after I filled each hole with a bulb and added potting soil, I watered them…and waited. Like raising a child, I raised these tulips, weeding, nurturing, feeding, allowing them room to grow, pruning, and finally, the full independence and strength of each tulip came through and they flowered into beautiful, scented, huge glory!
I measured my tallest tulip and it comes to 30 inches! There are no other tulips in the world as tall as mine! Just like there is no other child in the world like my son! All the hard work, gardening and parenting has paid off! Please click below to see the measurement video on Youtube:
