I'm continuing with a pink theme but no cherry blossoms this time -- instead, a tulip named 'Angelique'. Last November I planted 5 bulbs in a container. It looks like 3 survived the freezing temperatures of December & January and the first one started blushing and unfurling today. (Yesterday I couldn't tell if it was the pink 'Angelique' or the white 'Mount Tacoma'. )
I think I like tulips best in their shy adolescent stage. How about you?
