Bring Spring In

SANDPOINT, Idaho: It was chilly in town this morning. And windy. And sort of raining. These tulips cheered me up when I got home from work. I cut them from the yard yesterday, also chilly, windy and spitting. The sun came out a little this afternoon and it was pouring through the window in such a way that I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to capture it and share it on the world wide web. Glorious.

I think I said this last year too, (in a much different place) but no matter where you are – metropolis or country side, dreary weathered, sunny, cloudy, chipper, busy as a beaver, or bored to death – get yourself some tulips tonight (at the very latest tomorrow.) If you are lucky enough to cut them yourself or buying at the corner bodega, here is a tip in case you didn’t know already: pick the blooms that haven’t opened yet. As an example, these guys were closed pretty tight yesterday when they were still attached to the ground. They will open quickly, especially in a sunny window, and last much longer.
