Last of my Tulips...

I will be the gladdest thing
Under the sun!
I will touch a hundred flowers
And not pick one.

It would be too tempting to me, not to pick one flower:) Almost every week I pick some roses from my front yard - I love them on my table!

That sure went fast didn't it? Are those what's considered Black Tulips? Until next Spring . . .

What a "rich" color! That is a true statement, if a person picks a flower it is lost after a few hours,.. wilting. Let it stay on its stem and it will give many days of color and joy!

You know, I cannot wait for the tulips to bloom, and when they are done blooming, I cannot wait to be able to cut back their leaves. Everything has a season! Even birds and people.
