Tulips Just For You

TULIPS  are one of God's most beautiful creations.  Like our own lives.  The tulip bulb is like the Ugly Duckling - all stubby and brown !  We can look unpromising as "Grunge Teenagers" but like the tulip bulb we blossom into something beautiful that sometimes surprises even our own parents !  We order our bulbs in Faith - just as we procreate our children. The bulb is planted in the soil and a few months later the green shoot appears and then a beautiful tulip hopefully similar in colour and majesty to the picture in the catalogue.  All that beauty concealed  in an unpretentious bulb. So it is with us - one egg - one lucky ***** - one howling demanding infant - one beautiful person a perfect genetic symbiosis of it's parents.

Brilliant pictures.

How beautiful. It looks like heaven on earth. Now I want to go visit this place. Is this your own photography, you use in your poetry? If so, you take amazing pictures.

The last time I was in Holland was 30-years ago. If I ever get there again, I'll be sure to visit these gardens.
