Early Tulip Bloom Looking Likely

The Tulip Time Festival is less then two months away, but with the warmer-than-average winter and spring we have had, there are concerns about the tulips around town blooming early. Dennis Van Gorp at De Bloemen Hof tells KNIA/KRLS News that we are right on the borderline for tulips blooming too soon. He says that unless we get another cold phase to slow things down it’s likely they will come earlier then planned. He does add that, although the tulips blooming early isn’t ideal, the city and historical society have taken precautions, and an early bloom is nothing that hasn’t happened before.
