Snow and Bulbs

So there's still about 6-12 inches of snow still on the ground where I planted tulip bulbs last fall. Should I be concerned since its now almost May and they have not come up? In Quebec Canada.

They'll come up when the conditions are right.

The bulbs are more patient than we are. They are sensitive to the conditions and will peek through when the time is right :-). Wait for them and enjoy!
