I'd have thought slim.  My tulips went in last autumn and I suspect they need the period of cold to help with their growth cycle.  That being said, you never know ...
I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days all attack me at once...

They should go in early autumn, so that the sun bakes the bulbs to get the best results. Put them in , you have nothing to lose but i would not expect any flowers this year.

Plant them anyway so they'll stay in reasonable shape. It's far too late for this year but next year should give you some flowers.
