My backyard tulips started blooming about a month before normal thanks to the warm spring weather. However, it's been rainy and windy this past week, so the tulips are looking a little shaggy. I managed to take a few photos (in the wind!) of the blooms before they blew away.
I tried to "scatter plant" a few tulips in a garden bed, but they ended up a little spread out. I like it better when the tulips are in bunches. I'll have to remember to plant the tulips a little closer together next year.
I also planted a few rows of lettuce, radish and carrot seeds last weekend. Even if we get another frost in April, these cold-weather crops should be just fine. Have you planted anything in your garden yet, or are you waiting for warmer weather?
