"Tulipsicles" in the Test garden, reports Pam Randles in Haines, Alaska. Earlier this month, "Just before this last snow storm, my tulips emerged. They are about 2" tall. It has been snowing and melting and snowing and raining. So far they haven't died, so I have hope. I'll go take a photo and send it on to you. Say a little tulip prayer?" 05/01/13
