Waiting, Watching and Recording...

  • April 3: Nashville, Tennessee
    Sixth graders at Akiva Elementary just returned from break. "It is our first day back from spring break and our tulips are at their peak. I'm glad we did not miss it."

  • April 1: St. Louis, Missouri
    We have had below-average temperatures this winter, including 12 inches of snow just last Sunday! One of our 200 Red Emperor Tulips bloomed yesterday! So far, 164 of the 200 we planted have emerged.
  • April 1: Gilmanton, New Hampshire
    "Our tulip's leaves are getting more red. We see our tulips growing. Our tulips are beginning to come out. We see footprints in the mud. Our tulip leaves are big and fat, super super fat!"
  • April 1: St. Louis, Missouri
    Third graders write, "We have had below-average temperatures this winter, including 12 inches of snow just last Sunday. One of our 200 Red Emperor Tulips bloomed yesterday! So far, 164 of the 200 we planted have emerged."

  • March 29: Schuylerville, New York
    "While the children are away the buds are growing each day! The tulips do not know it is Spring Break here in Schuylerville, New York - what a surprise the students will have when they return and find that the tulips are emerging! Welcome Spring."
