A Farewell to Tulips 2015

Tulip season only lasted about a week.














Soon after we planted them, summer heat made them wither.

But that week was magical.

    1. I wait all year for that week (or two or three). Nature teaches us that nothing stays the same for long, and that we need to enjoy the present moment. :-)

  2. Nature teaches us to go spend more money, this time on petunias. What a lovely deck! May I come over and drink some coffee?

  3. Some of the most beautiful moments are just that ... moments. To be enjoyed for their sake. I'm so glad you took these photos to share with us. Such beauty! Thank you.

    1. Thanks for your comment, Kelly.

      I recently read a quote on Twitter from a philosopher (I forget who) that was something like, "It's better to welcome the seasons' changes than to be in love with Spring."

      I guess that makes me the fool who is in love with Spring. :-)
