a lucky few plant tulip bulbs along the Mohawk

– 9 A.M. – the start of bulb planting day at Riverside Park –

– Concetta [L] and Hainuo choosing bulbs –

 Jennifer Wells, Carol DeLaMarter and Tom Hodgkins (with his three youngsters) showed up this morning to plant tulip bulbs near the new columns at the west entryway to Riverside Park.  [The photographer dug a few holes, too.]  It was a brisk autumn morning under dramatic clouds and blue skies, and the workers mixed their tasks with schmoozing and smiles, and got the job done in about 90 minutes.

I hope the photos in this webpost and slideshow will make a few of our readers want to pitch in next year, for the Spring planting and the reprise of tulip planting next November.

   .  . The results come Spring will surely be worth the effort. As they say in the lawyer ads, prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome, but our 2010 flower beds suggest it will be worth a visit to the Park to check out the tulips come April (click on a photo to see a larger version; find more Stockade tulips here):
