Well, I just spent a half hour writing philosophically about gardening and the other people who have contributed to my garden here. I talked about former gardens and made it all analogous to my life. I was very clever, as you can imagine. Then I lost the whole post somehow and I don't have the wherewithall to do it all again. You will just have to imagine it for yourselves.
Suffice it to say, here is my one tulip. Then there is a bleeding heart coming, and another tulip bud.
