First off, I want to thank Daizy for her comment on my last post about using water to remove the wallpaper glue. I have to say that does seem much easier than sanding it all off. I have not tried it yet (I have to be home all day before I do a job like that -- maybe next weekend). I would have sent you an email, but your comment was anonymous, so I couldn't. Nonetheless, I appreciate the comment. It just may save me a lot of mess!
On to the tulips:
I have some blooming, but they are not making me giddy with joy as they usually do. They are on the small side this year and many did not come back from the past two years.
Last year I did a post about moving one of my favorite red/white tulips. Here they are right after I moved them:
I felt pretty smug about having them stand tall right after moving them in full bloom.
Here they are today:
The Big-Fat-Tulip-Leave syndrome. One leaf, no bloom. I am not feeling all that smug right now.
I do have one tulip area that I find acceptable. These tulips are about three years old and still giving a decent bloom, so that makes me happy.
Unlike the Rai tulips that I planted last fall. They opened further today and I am not happy with them.
The catalog shows this lovely plum purple and lime green color, not hot pink as mine seem to be!
Perhaps they will change to purple as they age a bit.
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
