Songs from childhood stay with us forever.
One I clearly remember singing was about tulips, one of spring's gifts to us.
It might have been a Girls' Scouts song but I really don't know since I was never a scout.
But the tune and words to it are embedded in my mind and heart.
This is how it went:
"Here, look in my garden bed —
Something beautiful is growing!
Bright shaped like a cup of red
Tulips open to the sun!
Last night it was small and green,
Flame-like now it is a-growing,
This one is the first I’ve seen,
Now sweet weather has begun!"
Tulips are harbingers of spring.
I love their perky bright or pastel colored cups!
My cousin, Marianne, had some tulips in a vase on a table in her den when we had tea last week.
They are shown in today's photos.
They were so pretty and were a gift to her from one of her sons.
Good thing no tulips are growing yet in the front yard round garden because a nor'easter is headed this way starting tomorrow through the weekend.
Oh brother, more snow so no yippah is coming from here----only dreams of tulips-to-come.
