|Goodbye Tulips - See you next Spring! ©CindyRippe2013|
This time of year in that part of the garden is difficult for me. The tulips, daffodils, hyacinths and crocus have finished blooming. The leaves need to grow for a while to feed the bulbs for next year's blooms and it's not so pretty. The Irises peek out between the dying leaves and the oriental lilies reach for the sky. It's messy.
There are always a few late blooming tulips that seem to hang on as long as they can. This year they are pink. It's hard to say goodbye but I'm grateful for those 5 tulips today. They remind me that the messy stage is worth waiting for. I'll see the early Spring flowers again next year.
Saying goodbye is the hardest part but the hope to see you soon makes it better. Ritu Ghatourey
