Is there a more beautiful tulip than the Parrot Tulip?
I thinkI love them even more than my Angéliques.
A dear friend sent us the most beautiful bouquet of assorted Spring flowers..imcluding these..I had to give them a spot of their own.
Long looong stemmed huge pink roses..Irises..Pussy Willows..Gerberas..etc..
I could have kissed the flower delivery gentleman.
It made our Easter even more special♥
I must get bulbs this fall and plant more..
They are much too gorgeous to forget.
I love these words from Claude Monet~
I perhaps owe having become a painter to flowers~
Our friend is an artist a wonderful artist..She used to inspire me when I would ring her doorbell and her apron had paint splashes all over it..
Music gently playing..
almost always fresh flowers in her foyer.
Never pretentiously arranged..always so natural..
We are able to now work in the gardens.. picking up all the leaves from the beds I was sure and am always sure we pick up every fall.
I think our gardens grow leaves...during winter.
Still a few to go..and with the wind howling..
It seems the leaves are laughing at us by coming right back..
Thank goodness I know that at one point..even their relentless nature..will be abated!
And FLOWERS will GROW!
Grateful..always..for a garden.
