Many people have asked me why I don't plant more Tulips. I adore Tulips. There are some around my garden. I actually have a real liking for the turkistanica "Tarda" variety, which are very small, but I plant Daffodils in the lawn because of the deer. They don't touch them.
I would love to include more Tulips and naturalize them in the lawn too, but they would be eaten up like a buffet, quicker than you can say "sneezebar". ; )
And really, you just can't beat Daffs for brightening up even the dullest of Spring days.
They almost seem to have sunny yellow smiles! The cups look like trumpets, heralding the arrival of Spring.
