Showers early this morning couldn’t dampen the spirits of these green thumbs, who turned out for the annual free, used tulip bulb giveaway in Chippawa Park by the city’s parks department. Photos showing the lineups were taken just before the 8a.m. start time. Carm and Filomena Presti (backs to camera) stayed dry (for the most part) under a shared umbrella and saw the end of the line just ahead of them. Parks staffers Danny Gauthier and Kayla Crowe had bags with bulbs at the ready to distribute to the gardeners. The annual giveaway is a popular rite of spring here in the Rose City.
