From Bulb to Bloom

News: Alaska Still Waiting

Gardens are still feeling the chill of cold weather in Anchorage, Palmer, and Haines, Alaska.

Haines: "No blooms yet," reports Pam Randles. "We have had such a weird spring this year. We even had a frost advisory yesterday. I worry that the poor tulips will get frostbite, but they seem to be okay. The leaves look undamaged so far. I suspect when they do bloom it will be sudden. We have had spectacular bird migration numbers as well; tens of thousands at a sighting! Strange spring." 05/16/13

Palmer and Anchorage: "I don't see a bit of tulip green showing, although the snow has melted. Our lawns have not greened up, the leaves on the trees are not out yet, but we have budburst. It snowed a couple of inches here Friday. We did have a very cold fall with no snow cover, but I see bulbs in my yard and all over town. We figure things are running about two weeks late here," writes Patrick Ryan. 05/22/13
