Flowers for Friday

Not one of Flora's brilliant race
  A form more perfect can display;
    Art could not feign more simple grace
      Nor Nature take a line away.
      - James Montgomery, On Planting a Tulip
Nothing adds more elegance to a room than a large clear vase of tulips. Whether you fancy the pinkest pink or a creamy ivory, tulips gracefully bend and arc on their green stems.  They delight us with their simplicity and amaze us with their beauty.

This Friday, indulge in a bunch of fresh tulips and you'll be cheerful all weekend long.

  1. Pink Frenchie,

    As someone who grew up in a warm climate, I cherished seeing tulips in on yearly trips to NYC. I remember how gorgeous they were in front of Rockefeller Center. I love them also in art prints. As an art historian, you are probably well versed in the Tulip Wars.

  2. A FAV place to indulge my passion for tulips is the Arboretum in Dallas. No need to fly to the Netherlands, Pink Frenchie.

    A feast for the eye -- wandering through the grounds of the sixty-six acre DeGolyer estate.
    Spectacular at "tuliptime" in the spring!
