The next 3 pictures will show you what it looked like in front of the fence about 7 years ago (more like 9 or 10 yrs ago) and now. The tulips bloomed for about 6 weeks and we had people from all over driving out and pulling in the driveway. One year around Labor Day we spent between $325-$375 (they were 75% off) on bulbs and planted them along the fence. Pretty long area. Anyway the first year was over 2000 flowers and the 2nd year under 200, and then after 3 or 4 yrs. nothing. The moles and gophers ate the bulbs. We would love to try it again but would have to put the bulbs in wire or something. To expensive to keep buying. The picture of the blooms is a picture of a picture. My DH and DS worked so hard planting them.
