Bulbs revisited

There's something similar in the joy of digging up potatoes and watching your fall planted bulbs grow and bloom. I think it's a combination made up partly of suspense and partly surprise. The tulips (and crocuses and hyacinths) pictured here were planted by students in the boxes outside of the children's garden at Brooklyn Botanic Garden using a design made by last year's horticulture interns, including me. So it's been fun to visit the boxes at Brooklyn Botanic periodically this year and see how they are developing. This week, they are finally full of color, but there's more yet to come.
