The early tulips are coming up

North Shore of L. I., NY(Zone 6b)

Hurray for my new tulips that I planted last fall. I actually planted lots of bulbs. Dutch iris and daffs were already up but I planted literally hundreds and hundreds of tulips and have been anxiously watching to see when they start coming up. They hadden't yet but yesterday was mostly sunny and its been around 50 for more than a week and today I see that the early tulips I planted along the left hand side of the front yard are coming up. This is an early mix of tulips I bought from Scheepers.

I also bought lots of new Darwin Tulips but those are not up yet. Still, I am excited about the early tulips. That means the rest will be coming along soon now and I can't wait.
