Tulips and Pinwheels in Wellfleet

Glorious weather here in Wellfleet today! I immediately went out to inventory the garden. There seem to be a lot of perennials that did not make it through the winter, and rabbits have decapitated the tulips behind the cottage. I knew this might happen, but planted them anyway. The ones in front of the house survived (above). Only the tulip at the far left bottom seems to have had nibbles. The folks at Children's Cove solved this problem by planting pinwheels, rather than tulips, to symbolize the 200 children who were abused on the Cape over the past year alone. The display is the first thing drivers see as they turn left at Main Street into town.
