My sister and I were recently in Waco where we saw these beautiful tulips. I'd love to have them in my yard but, alas, the deer would eat them if I did. I didn't realize before that tulip leaves are so many different shapes. Some are very broad and not growing straight up at all. Some are trying to be taller than the tallest tulips, but aren't quite making it. In the background are bushes, thick and beautiful. We enjoyed the visit there.
