You win some; you lose some. The tiny leeks are still not very big. Unfortunately, there are always hungry bugs and we lost one of the three. But, over in one of the other seedling homes, a second leek has germinated and is now the same size as it's siblings. Obviously, this is one tough leek. I've unwound it from the other and it now has a new home. But not the old, cursed site - all new.
Since the leeks aren't very photogenic yet, here are the last of the spring tulips. I love the subtle yellow edges on the pink petals. I'm a sucker for that color combination and these are my favorite tulips each year. I also was intrigued by the maple leaf shadows on the tulip bloom.
