Wordless Wednesday

A friend sent me a basket of tulip bulbs last month after my father's passing. Here they are after blooming.

  3. Tulips are so soothingly lovely, aren't they? I hope the grief at your father's passing is easing a little. It's very hard, and winter makes it that much harder.

  7. I'm so sorry to hear about your father.

    What lovely tulips. I planted some new varieties last fall and am looking forward to spring when they will bloom. I don't think any were red but I do love that color. It makes such an impact even from a distance.

  8. ...they are lovely. Would they bloom again if you planted them in your garden? How nice to look at them and remember a kindness during a difficult time.

  10. Such a nice thing to remember your dad by. I'm still hoping you will do a post someday on his hell strip garden. You don't have to do it as a "guest" on Greenwalks by any means! I'm just so curious to see what he created, if you are up for that sometime.
