This guy is the last tulip of the season. All the others are now dead headed and started storing energy for next year. This is when the garden starts to look ugly for a time as the tulip leaves start to die back. I am always tempted to take those leaves off, but I must wait . Hard thing to do as there is so much there till about mid June. All said, the Tulip garden is well worth it and the transition from spring to summer is always exciting anyway. Remember never remove the leaves till they are finished up.
