I love tulips better than any other spring flower; they are the embodiment of alert cheerfulness and tidy grace…
I have heard them called bold and flaunting, but to me they seem modest grace itself, only always on the alert to enjoy life as much as they can and not be afraid of looking the sun or anything else above them in the face.”
I love red!
“I feel as if I had opened a book and found roses of yesterday,
sweet and fragrant, between its leaves.” –

If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant. – Anne Bradstreet
Tulips are one of the first flowers to start blooming in my garden in the Spring, but I still have several weeks to wait. This weekend, we were hit with an ice storm, but thanks to a friend, we still had a little Spring inside!

There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens: a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot…a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance…He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end. I know that there is nothing better for people than to be happy and to do good while they live. That each of them may eat and drink, and find satisfaction in all their toil—this is the gift of God. From Ecclesiastes 3
