Over the past couple of years I have waited somewhat impatiently in spring for my tulips to come up. This year, of course, they were a little too wet to grow properly, but I had been noticing that fewer and fewer were actually growing. I think the bulbs are just getting too old to regrow properly in spring, unless the conditions are absolutely perfect.
So I decided that the tulip patch needed to be revitalized. I kept an eye out for new bulbs, but it wasn’t until the last couple of weeks that I saw them for sale in a few places. One time when I was in Canadian Tire I spent some time trying to not buy forty or fifty new bulbs. There are so many colours to choose from, but I finally picked a set of mixed ones, and a set of dark purple ones. Now to plant them and wait until spring again to see exactly what colours they are.
