Pure.....

Nothing more pure than a single tulip...beauty in its purest form...


"I hide myself within my flower,
That wearing on your breast,
You, unsuspecting, wear me too --
And angels know the rest.
I hide myself within my flower,
That, fading from your vase,
You, upsuspecting, feel for me
Almost a loneliness."

- Emily Dickinson

  2. Heidi, I always think of you and Holland when I see tulips. I have some pink tulips and they bloomed but not nearly as full or as many as last year. I think I have a black thumb :(
