Day 69 Theme #43 Challenging

Tulip Time, originally uploaded by needlepointernc.

It is CHALLENGING to grow tulips here in the South (in addition to the Lilacs I just posted about). They need a cold winter to set. For some reason we have pretty good luck getting them to bloom in our yard. The rabbits nibbled on some of the leaves, but the deer don’t seem to like this variety. These are growing under our mailbox.

The security might work if the critters were literate! Pretty tulips!

Great playfulness with this theme!

We stick all our bulbs in the freezer for months before we plant them out, that takes care of the winter aspect. The sign next to the tulips does send a warning.
