TENDER LOVING CARE FOR TULIPS -- Miss Josephine B. Jones works among her prized tulips at her home in Highland Hills where she has established a bed for the tulips which have been propagated, from stock cared for by members of her family for 120 years. The original bulbs were given tn Miss Jones' grandmother, Mrs. A. W. ( E m i l y Mindwcll) Jones when she was a girl in 1850. Mrs. Jones and her husband brought the tulips to C.rceley in 1884. Part of the slock passed tn Miss Jones' mother. Mrs. J. Hall Jones, in IB99 and for many years the Jones family raised a large bed of the tulips at its home at 1118 X I h SI. Miss Jones took over the culture of the prized bulbs as she grew tn womanhood. In 1036 her teaching duties took her awav from Greelcv for a short time and the tulips were cared for by Mrs. 0. J. Bresnahan. When the Jones family home was sold in 1960, Miss Jones moved the tulips to the Calvin Thomas farm east of Ault for a few years until she built her present home in Highland Hills. Now the tulip bed nestles among native grasses and flowers on a south slope overlooking U.S. 34 bypass about four miles west of Grocley. Under the watchful eye of Miss Jones,"the first blooms appeared Saturday morning and by Monday all of the plants were in full bloom. Miss Jones estimates t h a t nearly a half million bulbs have been supplied friends and neighbors of the family over the years.
