Leslie - This is gorgeous. Now I have to go back to Chicago in the spring. What is the best month to get the tulips in bloom? #9563913

Debbie E. Payne July 29, 2011

I meant, Lindley. Your name reminded me of my cousin, Leslie and it's early and I haven't had my coffee yet.


Lindley Johnson level-classic July 29, 2011

Debbie, I know how it is to try to function without coffee! The tulips are in bloom in May - this photo was taken on Mother's Day this year, and they were beautiful! #9567575
