Tulips Have Popped!

In October 2011, almost six months ago, i dug up soil and fertilized it and planted tulip buds in two large pots on my balcony. i have been waiting patiently for them to come up to brighten my rather plain barbeque area.

And TODAY… they POPPED up! (i’m sure they poked their little heads out earlier but i only really noticed them today) That’s right, i have i think… ten little shoots! Happy, Happy, Happy 😀

A sign that Spring has come, finally, after what has been quite a freezing Winter. The official calender start to Spring is on 20.03.2012, Tuesday, at least according to my bought-in-Switzerland calender.
