Our Little Bed of Tulips

Last autumn, hubby and I chanced upon a pack of assorted tulips on sale. We grabbed a pack and planted the bulbs in our small tilled plot for seasonal flowers, along with other spring and summer plants.

Finally in spring, the bulbs began to shoot out. Oh, how excited we were to watch each stage of their growth until they finally bloomed into different varieties and colors that were so vibrant! Every afternoon after work, as we sat down on our little porch to take a rest, we just looked at them and admired their beauty.

And, of course, each flower became an adorable object of my photographic passion! And I just clicked, and clicked and clicked until they withered away.

Now they are a history, the very first tulips that we have ever planted and truly owned. They're gone now, and yet, they still exist, fresh as ever, in my cyberhome.

Next year, in the spring, I'm going to meet them again.
