part of me wishes i had a south facing or even east or west facing house. so in the winter when it snows the sun will melt it away and i won't have to shovel it as often...but then part of me loves that i have a north facing house because my tulips come in later and stay longer. so for now i am happy with my house. until winter. these are my tulips. this is the first year i have ever planted tulips and seen them come in. i love them. there is only one thing that bothers me. the red ones in the back are shorter than the yellow ones in the front. how did this happen! there was no warning on the bag that said short or tall tulips that i can remember. but i love them just the same. the are so pretty. i can't wait till the fall...i am going to plant more in the front and a ton in the backyard. my mother in law gave me a daisy plant that i am planting tonight and look forward to watching the TALL daisies grow in the backyard. i want them to take over back there. i love flowers that are independant!
