Bartlett Arboretum in Belle Plaine will be open Friday, Saturday and Sunday to give people a chance to see the grounds’ tulips, finally in full bloom after a prolonged cold spell kept most of them closed during Belle Plaine’s annual Tulip Time two weeks ago.

“It’s raucous,” the arboretum’s steward, Robin Macy, said of the show of flowers. “It’s pretty incredible.”

Volunteers planted more than 30,000 tulips on the grounds under the century-old arboretum’s towering trees. Gates will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday through Sunday, and a $5 donation is suggested. Live jazz will be performed from 1 to 3 p.m. Sunday.
