I finally made a trip out to our tulip fields only to find…they had been topped! Apparently, they do this for two reasons. Firstly, if they don’t top the plant then the petals will fall to the base and would eventually rot the plant and kill the bulb. The second reason is to allow more energy to be absorbed by the bulb. While I totally get it, I just wish they could have done this next week! Not all was a loss, check back tomorrow for Tulip Visit Part II…the saga continues…
