The tulips came a little late this year. Last year Matt went to the Sherwood Gardens annual bulb dig and dug up a bunch of exotic tulip bulbs. We planted them in clumps of the same color, but we deliberately did not know which color we planted in which spot.

He planted about 60 bulbs in November and we plan to go back this year for more. It has been a lot of fun seeing them bloom this year-I especially like the black tulips. Ironically, I heard that not many of the tulips at Sherwood Gardens came up this year due to the freakishly cold weather in April, but all of ours did.

Black tulips with ruffly edges near the cherry tree in the backyard.

Pink tulips near the center of the backyard with wedding gift flamingos.

Pinky lavender tulips and green and white striped tulips around the new dogwood in the front yard.
Purple tulips along the front walk.

I'm so excited you've started a gardening blog. Your yard is about 4 times wider and 10 times deeper than mine!

I love your tulips. I want to go the annual bulb dig, but I'll be out of town. According to the Guilford calendar it is the last Sat. in May.

My good gardening news is that no one stole my tulips this year!

Can you provide details on bulb digs and other gardening type events for us novice gardeners?
