RE: My Tulip Tree!!!


Thanks, Theresa!  Yes, it is pretty amazing, though you couldn't really tell
the tree was in bloom from the street yesterday.  One lower limb must have
7-8 huge blossoms on it.  Then when I looked up into the upper canopy
(finally knowing what to look for) it was just filled with those pale
greenish/yellow blooms!  I imagine the tree will grow much taller than the
cottonwoods and elms in the yard.

Blessings,
Bonnie (SW OH - zone 5)

There used to be huge ones in the woods on the corner where I grew up.  
I was so amazed to see such a gigantic tree blooming!  I don't remember what
came after the blooms though.  Congrats, however,  I'm sure it is amazing
to see the blooms.
