(LOOKING DOWN INTO A TULIP )
All winter long, I thought about the bulbs under the frozen earth. When the weather started to warm up and the ground unfroze, squirrels began digging up the bulbs and eating them.
Finally, after some chicken wire protection, (http://writingstraightfromtheheart.blogspot.com/2011/04/bunny-wishes-and-chicken-wire-war.html ) green shoots popped up out of the earth.
At last the daffodils and tulips have bloomed and fill our front yard with bright colors.
