The last of the tulips will be finished by this weekend. Magnificent, they were. Their beauty now transfigured into digital ghosts, captured and put away in my computer, floating out now and again...for me, and sometimes you...to remember.
Unusually cool, sometimes frighteningly cold, weather extended their performance
and our enjoyment. In fact, and I am going out on a limb here...
in the twenty plus years I have been gardening here
I think this was the most spectacular spring show
Thanks to all of you who noticed, commented, appreciated,
drove by with your aging parents, or
walked by with your pooch...
again and again...
to see what would bloom next, open next
Savoring it, I think, almost
as much as I.
