    The tulips planted on Lily Pool Terrace are in bloom! Planted last fall by curator Cayleb Long and BBG interns, this display of over 6,000 plants is one of the most vibrant signs of spring in the Garden. Each year the pattern of the display changes along with the varieties featured so it is always a welcome surprise when the bulbs begin to bloom and show their colors. This year Cayleb planted a riotous rainbow with highlights including 'West Point,' 'El Niño,' and 'Angelique.' If you want to see the display in person be sure to come soon, as once the blooms begin to fade the plants are replaced with the Annual Border display.
