Towering Prism Tulip

(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.  Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

We occasionally get false promises of Spring, but when the tulips start to bloom we can be fairly certain that Spring is really here.  We only have a couple Towering Prism Tulips, but they are tall and put on a beautiful display.

Did your flowers survive the couple nights of freezing weather? Lots of neighbors had plants blanketed for the evenings.
