I couldn't resist these beautiful tulips I found this week. Their petals almost look handpainted.
Throughout the week this bouquet has added a lovely touch of spring to our home.
Tomorrow is the first official day of spring, so I hope warm weather will soon awaken the landscape around us.
"Awake, thou wintry earth
Fling off thy sadness
Fair vernal flowers, laugh forth
Your ancient gladness!"
-- Thomas Blackburn, "An Easter Hymn"
