Last week, as I prepared for the Easter weekend, I indulged myself once again and bought some flowers.
These tulips were tightly closed but I could see a hint of green mixed in with the pink petals.
They were irresistible.
I could tell that the flowers were going to be frilly, and before I knew it I had put two bunches in my cart.
I did a bit of research on double tulips and read that they are sometimes referred to as peony tulips. I can certainly see why. These remind me of the pink peonies that grace my garden around the beginning of July… am I dreaming? Umm, yes. But what a wonderful dream.
A tulip doesn’t strive to impress anyone.
It doesn’t struggle to be different than a rose.
It doesn’t have to.
It is different.
And there’s room in the garden for every flower”
