Tulips

When I was 30, we travelled back from Amsterdam and with the gain of the extra hour, I had a 25 hour birthday. On our way to the airport, I fulfilled an ambition by walking to the early morning flower market and buying tulips from Amsterdam. Humming the old Max Bygraves song, I carried them on to the plane and all the way home. Memorable times.

So I was delighted when my neighbour popped by yesterday afternoon with a bunch of lovely tulips as a belated birthday gift. No sunshine here today and it is bitterly cold, but the flowers bring some with them and the warmth of the memories too.
A wonderful shot of these beautiful tulips and their lovely tones, fav!

Lovely image and story. It reminded me of purchasing some tulip bulbs when I passed through the airport in Amsterdam in September last year. I too was humming the song! I've planted some of them and await the Spring with interest to see what comes up and where.

Beautiful. I love tulips and I think seeing yours I will get some this weekend. My vase is like yours and my sister in law brought me daffodils yesterday and today they have all opened out and the perfume reminds me of spring days! Like you today here has been just above freezing and a little sunshine.

Thank you for asking after hubbie, he says I have to tell you he’s feeling a lot better and appreciates you asking. Hope you and your hubbie are a bit better, I know it’s a long one with a broken foot but hope he’s coping, not long to go now.

These are beautiful. I love tulips - so elegant, and an encouraging sign that warmer weather will be on its way.

Beautiful elegant tulips and I like your framing - no pun intended! I brought tulips from Amsterdam some years ago and most remember being advised not to cut the stalks until we got home and were ready to put them in water.
