Your tulips are so pretty, chico, are those rose bushes I see between the tulips? Roses are my favourite plants.

My Magnolia hasn't bloomed yet:sad:. It seems to be so far behind everybody elses

Real pretty Chico. My bulb collection rendered 4 tulips, 1 daffodil and 1 fritillaria that is almost bloomed. What is that left of the tulips in the first pic? Also I have a beef, you live about an hour from me and you have buds on your poppies already mine are only about 6ins tall.
