When you move from perpetual summer into a place where there are seasons, you learn a lot you had either never known or forgotten. One of those interesting facts is that the flowers bloom over a season and not all at once. In the low desert, we were used to seeing annual flowers bloom in January and be gone by February. Here on the side of the Wasatch Mountains at about 4,000 to 5,000 feet above sea level, the flowers only begin to bloom in March and are not completely bloomed out until the end of April or later. These are early tulips. They seem to bloom in stages depending on the variety.
