The Black Tulips....

Remember the January Picture of them just popping the heads out of the soil?
I have watched them grow along side the Christmas trees I put outside and hoped would survive....
well look at them now
 As they were growing I could see little tips of a pinky red/purple but they are going blacker the longer they are out and the mini trees are covered in new growth too...
 I'm so pleased I haven't killed them or the Christmas trees...I wonder how big the Trees will be for next Christmas?
