Our first Spring in this house was in 2005. In the front yard, close to the driveway, a lonely little tulip grew and opened up.

So, the next year we expected only one again - just like we had been told it would keep doing until it finally just died away. I don't know if the tulip knew there were people living in the house now or what, but it brought along two of its friends.

However, in 2008, the trio grew into a quintuplet. Unfortunately, I didn't take any pictures of them when they actually opened. (Apparently, my documentation skills used to really suck.)

Last year, 2009, they decided that five was just too boring and brought along two more friends:

And this year, three more decided to join in. (In the picture only 9 are open, but the 10th will be any day now)
