Accidental Tulips - a little bit of spring

Last year Hannah chose tulips from the bulb catalogue; dutch yellow and red parrot tulips.  We put them in the vegie crisper for the required length of time, we bought bulb potting mix and special bulb food.  The tulips were duly planted, watered, watched....all for a miserable display of one straggly little flower.  We left the pot in the garden, disappointed and forgotten.  About a fortnight ago a spot of yellow caught my eye as we came up the driveway.  Can there be anything happier than an accidental crop of tulips?  Happy Spring!
