Inspired by. . . tulips

Which color to buy? They are all so bright and. . . happy looking!

I love flowers. And my guess is that you probably do to!

For me, tulips are happy flowers. Being a first sign of spring, they bring with them the  promise of new beginnings.

As with most beginnings, these delicate beauties don't last long.

To a Bed of Tulips

Bright tulips, we do know

You had your coming hither;

And fading time does show,

That ye must quickly wither.

Your sister-hoods may stay,

And smile here for your hour;

But die ye must away;

Even as the meanest flower.
