Irish Garden Blooms
"After such a long cold March, on this lovely warm day (a high of 13!) our leading tulip finally unfurled its petals," writes Heather in Dublin. "It has been poking up and getting redder and redder all week, but today it finally got that last burst of sunshine it needed to truly open." 04/14/13 Dublin, Ireland
