Tulips, Primrose

The first tulips are blooming here, although they were transplanted from a store shelf to the garden when they were about 6 inches high, rather than planted last fall. Not bad for 30 cents at Walmart. Having something colorful to look at when I step outside makes a world of difference.
The bulbs I planted last fall are chuggin' along, but not quite blooming yet. A few more weeks maybe?
I found this primrose for 50 cents at Lowe's- I bought 4, two yellow and two blue. I pulled the dead blooms, and put in the ground. I have a blue one that made it through the winter in the yard, so I plan on leaving these in the ground permanently.
Happy Spring!
