Spring's coming, there's no doubt of it

A few days ago I took this photo in the garden. Back in April I went to the Flower and Garden Show in Melbourne, had a fabulous time, and bought my first tulip bulbs (how hard can it be?).

I stored them in the fridge for the required six weeks; forgot about them and left them for an extra four or so weeks; then planted them, some in the garden bed, and some in big pots.

And here's the first signs of flowering!

And now it's a few days later. My first tulip!

They are a real favourite of mine as a cut flower, but so much nicer in the garden.
