A Kick of Color on a Grey Day!
I received these pretty red tulips for my birthday on Saturday evening...they were closed and tight...and when I went to look at them a little while ago, they'd bloomed! They're quite exotic-looking now, don't you think? They're certainly cheering up the rather dreary view on a dull and rainy day. Note the wooden tulips nearby in the vase on the right. On the left is a cactus that my younger nephew gave me on a previous birthday - the dryness and bottom heat from the radiator that have killed other plants clearly suit this hardy survivor.
