Mine are a bust.
Though they were short stemmed, I was happy, thinking that at the very least I will get a bouquet of tulips out of them.
Yesterday morning I saw red blossoms spread like a carpet on the earth. The tulip stems and leaves were in place, but the flowers were long gone.
I didn't know where to put the blame.

Then a huge hare hopped through the yard and I could see that I should place the blame where it belongs.
Had I left open access to the compost, the rabbit would not have gone after my tulips.
Maybe next year.

Though I had previously decided not to do sweet peas this year, and it is late to be planting them, why not.
I will do better with them than with the tulips and the hare.
