Tulip time right on schedule?

While going to the mailbox this morning at the bed and breakfast, I noticed that the tulip and daffodil bulbs all seem to continue to push their way up through the semi-frozen ground.  Holland’s tulip festival is some years “right on schedule” and others like last year the tulips all seemed to bloom before the festival week even began.  But given the cooler early spring that we have been experiencing in West Michigan this year, the tulips will most likely be “right on schedule” during the tulip festival in Holland.
