This tulip is now taller than Leia and a light saber. Might be time for a new model. Sorry Leia.
Okay not strictly a tulip, but these pretty little yellow flowers (Winter Aconite) were amongst the very first plants to bloom on the street and herald Spring. Only a Crocus in a particularly sunny spot can beat Aconite!
Leia (4.5cm/1.75") points to the height this tulip was on the 29th.
Leia (4.5cm/1.75") toasts the first tulip at 19 Tulip.
The tips of the tulips appear to have survived heavy snow falls and the sidewalk plow.
This was taken the evening of March 19 before the 15 - 20 cm of snow that fell overnight. All thoughts of spring were put on hold on the 20th.
