Yay! The tulips are coming up!

I made a post a couple weeks ago about being excited to start my gardening. I have noticed the last couple days, the tulips are coming back! I am getting very excited to get to it now! The best thing about tulips is they come back every year. They are almost my personal indicator of warmer and milder weather ahead. :)

We have had a couple of beautiful days here in Western Montana. One day even got up to almost 70! Most of the country has had these kind of days, but here this is wonderful to finally see it! Montana winters are very long and often very harsh. We say there are three seasons here; Winter, Summer and Construction.

In Montana, the month of March really does "come in like a lion and go out like a lamb" most of the time, but this IS Montana and weather here can be pretty unpredictable. We have a saying here-

"Don't like the weather here? wait five minuets!"
That is so true! Today, it was pouring rain, thundering and lightning, the whole bit and now, its semi-sunny and you would never have known it was so windy and rainy just a couple hours ago.

Here's a picture of my tulips that are coming up!

Now, as much as I am looking forward to spring warm weather, I am equally NOT looking forward to what comes after that- the summer heat! We don't have an air conditioner so the house can get pretty darn hot!

I hope you are having a lovely spring!


  1. We are having thunder too in New England. I think that the deer have eaten all of my tulips, despite all of my efforts to prevent them. Come visit my blog and see my Johnny-jump- ups growing in my lawn.

  2. I can relate! We live in MA where the weather is very changeable. I do love tulips though. They are so bright and jooyful!
