Tulip Time


I can see why 17th century Dutch merchants  worked themselves into a fever over tulip bulbs. The flowers are never static. Even when captured in a vase they change shape and shade throughout the day. I think the colours here complement Cee’s stunning bearded iris, so please visit her at:

      1. When I yelled at her for being a bad moose, she had the grace to walk away in shame. It only took window rapping, arm waving, and loud yelling to get her to realize her mistake.

  1. beautiful shades – often look best too when full blown with age(!) that does not so much wither as send into artistic contortions of their own making

  3. Very lovely, and you can see why the Dutch go crazy…even today…over tulips. I still have not been to Holland during tulip season, but it’s on my list. The Dutch were some of the first to import coffee, as well!
