      I do too!! And it was the other tulips that gave the contrast. Not surprising – it was the garden that created the most interest.

      Thank you so much. I’m glad that the gardener allowed it to grow…many would have culled it from the pink herd.

  4. Genius and Common Sense make great partners. It would seem that both of them are born from concentrated thought.
