With tulips in full bloom right now, it is easy to write a post about this flower.
In our garden, we have not as many tulips as I would wish. But the small number we have can be devided into two groups: one half is growing because I planted them. They are light pink to pink and really look like spring itself. The other half is growing because the former owner of our house planted them. They are red and yellow and look like little sunsets or like burning flames. Completely not to my taste. But still, they are tulips, and they bloom in spring, and I love looking at them.
We had a number of days with many clouds and some rain, but with mild temperatures. For me, this is the best time of year. Not cold, and not hot. That is the way I like my food and my drink—and the weather. This weather teased out the green in almost every tree or shrub. The leaves on the trees are not yet fully grown, but they already make such a difference—a wonderful sight.
