In Minnesota spring is a big event. After looking at bare trees for over six months I am always delighted to see bright colors. Some of the first flowers out are tulips. At the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum they always plant thousands of tulips. This year they had a wonderful display using the theme of orange and purple flowers. Enjoy the beauty of their rich display.

I’m glad you like them.

One nice thing about tulips is that they are edible (though we are to cut out the center of the bulb if we want to eat it, because it can be toxic)–the leaves, stem, and flowers are best, and the meal will be more colorful than, say, comfrey.

Lovely. Thanks so much for these lovely photos.

The fact that they are edible is probably why the deer ate most of my tulips. If I don’t get out and spray them right away they’re gone.
