Tulips in the Spring!

The newest addition to my apartment! Beautiful red tulips!

The odd thing is, I almost don’t want all the flower buds to go into full bloom! To me tulips are the prettiest when they are half-open like the two little flowers on the plant in the photograph. I know, it’s a cliched and tired metaphor, but it’s really true, half blooming tulip buds make me smile and think of the lovely summer to come. Sometimes, that anticipation is a more wonderful feeling than the joy the actual summer brings, not least because when I dream of summer during the long cold winter, I don’t usually think of how sweaty and stuffy and painfully bright it can get in June 😛

Don’t get me wrong though, the summer is great and I can’t wait to barbecue and swim in a lake and do yoga in the park!

      All types? Or do you have a favourite colour?

        I’m definitely (DEFINITELY) not a connoisseur of flowers, but I like the really dark ones…sorry, I’m being very vague. 🙂
