Tulips

March 8, 2018 (067/365)

“I love tulips better than any other spring flower; they are the embodiment of alert cheerfulness and tidy grace, and look like a wholesome, freshly tubbed young girl...Their faint, delicate scent is refinement itself; and is there anything in the world more charming than the sprightly way they hold up their little faces to the sun? To me they seem modest grace itself, only always on the alert to enjoy life as much as they can and not be afraid of looking the sun or anything else above them in the face.” ~ Elizabeth von Arnim
