The White Tulips Have Bloomed

Last fall I planted a row of white tulips.  Then, I was worried that they were not in a sunny enough spot.  The last two days have been unseasonably cold, with high winds and snow flurries.

Imagine my surprise when I saw this! ~

These ladies are very demure when the sun is hidden behind clouds.

When the sun deigns to shine for an hour or two, they are downright blowzy.  ~

Sunshine has the same effect on them as too may margaritas around a pool, have on me.  They get a little bit of a floozy, floppy look to them.  

I don't remember that happening when I was younger!

If the weather improves, I'll go out and tidy up the bed and that may make them behave themselves a little better.  These girls are in the front yard and I don't want the neighbours to see them this way!
