Garden Gifts

The tulips are blooming right outside my prayer porch.

I love these. I purchased a lot of bulbs from California. These were a "special offer" packet.
I planted most of the bulbs around the door to the prayer porch and some underground beastie, either a gopher or vole, I don't really know the difference, either way, the lovely creature decided I meant the fresh bulbs for a main course in a super banquet. I was sad about it, but the following Spring I had these dandies blooming like wild gifts around the base of the huge sycamore tree where they'd been planted. They really are red & white checkered and remind me of all the fairy books I read as a child.
