Tulips – Live!

A conversation with my friend Sue is the author of this post pre-bedtime. She alerted me to the number of death references in my blog recently. I do like living things.
The tulips in the vase in my sitting room are wonderfully vibrant, and oh so beautiful.


Mind you, I shall probably like them just as much, and photograph them, when they are dying.

  1. The tulips are beautiful. A friend shared a children’s book with me (originally German)
    Duck, Death and the Tulip by [Wolf Elrbruch]. It came to mind when you had the tulips and the mention of all the death references. It made me cry when I read it. But was also very lovely.

    • Where I live, and apologies to those who have read this before, used to be a flower nursery in then C19. It was famous for its tulips and even gets a mention in Anna Pavord’s book.
      There’s fame!
