Good thing I got some tulips photographs when I did, because for the 2nd year in a row, some *@!(# pulled many of them out of my garden. Last year almost every one was removed. This time only about a quarter of them, but I don’t have really big hopes of the rest surviving the week. I’m sure the vandals will be back. It breaks my heart.

I have visions of booby-trapping every single remaining stem with a razor blade, but apparently that isn’t so legal either.
