Let's be honest:

"They tried to bury me, they did not
realize I was a seed." Sinead O'Connor
If you pay attention, flowers whisper.

I suspect most of you tulip gardeners already had your mesmerizing tulip moments earlier this Spring, but I live in northern Canada so this photo is from Sunday. 

This is my first time growing tulips. My friend provided them for my adult English class. Developed by the good people of The Netherlands and distributed globally, they are named, Peace for Ukraine. 

Ecologist Thomas Berry said it so well: "the universe is a communion of subjects, not a collection of objects." If only the world operated this way, eh? 

What did this flower whisper to me? Lift up your heart. You are not alone. Have courage.

It is possible that the longer you have to wait for the tulips, the more you might appreciate them. Just a theory.

Yes, our tulips are long gone but they are my favorite flower. They grew so well when I lived in Seattle. This photo is beautiful.

I love the bright pink (magenta?) color of the tulip!

We have never been gardeners. Our time was usually spent taking care of the horses and going to shows. Now that we are older, we've talked about it, but nothing really grows where we live now.
Those are beautiful tulips!
