A very dear friend, Donna, brightened not just a day but the whole month by bringing beautiful pink tulips as a gift.
Placed in a white milk glass vase, they have brought so much beauty and joy to our home.
Tulips are such beautiful flowers and are so reminiscent of spring-to-come.
There is a song about tulips that we used to sing, as kids.
It might have been a Girls Scouts song.
These are the words to it:
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!
Isn't it funny how a song or a poem from our days when we were kids can still come to mind and bring us back to a long, long, time ago?
