Purple Prince

Purple Prince

Spring came early this year. Normally we can enjoy tulips early June. Purple Prince started to bloom few days ago and it is just mid May!

It is a new variety I bought last year and one of the few survivors!

I can now see that I have lost most of my tulips. The winter was hard on tulips and only a handful of them could take minus 33 degree Celsius we had in January. The thin layer of snow could not give them the protection desperately needed.

Well a good reason to me to shop more in the autumn.
