Holliston, Massachusetts
We returned from spring vacation to find our tulips had shot up to 30 to 33 cm tall and were in full bloom! Just the week before most measured from 16 to 22 cm. The petals on the blossoms are extraordinarily large this year? All 200-plus second graders planted a bulb in the garden last fall. 04/22/13
