“The earth laughs in flowers”…..Ralph Waldo Emerson.
I wanted to share a snap shot of the beautiful tulips I received on Mother’s Day. Tulips are without a doubt my favorite flower. One of the things on my bucket list is to go to Holland and just lay in a sea of tulips. That would be Heaven on earth.
I guess my love affair with tulips started in my childhood. I have fond memories of going to my grandmother’s home and seeing tulips everywhere. Springtime in her neighborhood was glorious. She lived in a small town outside of Pittsburgh. So many of the homes were lined with tulip borders in all the various colors. I remember them even peeking through the last days of snows some years.

Hopefully these snapshots of the simple beauty of tulips will put a smile on your face. 🙂
