So much for planning

Last fall I planted a bunch of tulip bulbs. I chose early season, mid-season and late season varieties because I wanted to enjoy tulip color across several months.

You guessed it. Due our whacko warm spring weather, they're all up now. Two of the three varieties are in full bloom and the third is up with fully formed buds that are ready to open.

This variety is called Christmas Orange. It should bloom in mid-April. Or mid-March. Take your pick.

Christmas Orange close up. The colors are stunning.

This one is called Indian Summer. It is a mid-season variety and the catalog assured me it would bloom late April through May. Or in mid-March.

The final variety is called violet beauty. I'll post pics when they open. Which is supposed to be in mid-May but I'm guessing they're not going to hold out that long.
