My bulbs never look like this

Been busy writing a story and editing other people's copy all day, so I never made it down to the show. Whew! But before I go home, thought I'd share an image from yesterday to keep us all going: a bulb garden of tulips, hyacinth and amaryllis, if I'm not mistaken. (If I am, I'm sure I'll hear about it!) This one was entered by Dodo Hamilton, the queen of the ball, but it didn't win first prize. Only third. Still, I think it's a beauty.
