The blooms are heavy, so at least 5-6 stems of them have fallen over and are laying on the azaleas behind them.
Yesterday, my neighbor called and asked me to come over and see her yard. It is a showplace, and should be in a magazine. I would estimate at least 500 tulips in full bloom over there, and such blooms we have seldom seen outside of Holland! They are huge blossoms (about 3 1/2-4") and they stand about 2 feet tall. She gave me an armload of them, and now their orange and yellow blooms grace my living room and kitchen. It is too bad I didn't get to take a photo of them for you. I'll have to do that next year. Tomorrow, their tulips (which are only beginning to show signs of aging) will be ripped out of the soil and replaced with something just entering its prime (usually begonias). It is nice to live near such beautiful displays, but it puts a lot of pressure on a non-gardener, like I am!
