“Give me odorous at sunrise a garden of beautiful flowers where I can walk undisturbed”. Walt Whitman
Tulips heralding an early spring time?

  I I never particularly loved Tulips when I was younger, but lately I’ve grown very found of them, and last year I grew some, and was also given some bunches of them which brought me much delight.  As they were sitting in their vase on the table, after a day or two their flower heads would open and come hanging down very gracefully, almost reaching the table cloth, a beautiful sight.  This year also I will be looking forward to have some in the house.  Growing them is quite easy but I still have trouble storing and keeping the bulbs from going mouldy or rotting on me during the winter.  The shops here are full of them any season of the year but especially coming up now in another while.  It is said that flowers feed the soul, and I have no difficulty in believing this.  The delight they give is surely wonderful.
