Beautiful Tulips

The tulips and cherry blossom in my garden are out!

Whenever I'm in Amsterdam, I make sure I buy lots of tulip bulbs, all with exotic pictures on the front and promises of unusual show-stopping blooms in exciting colour combinations.  This includes the thrillingly named 'Queen of the Night', a black tulip.  I've lost count of the number of 'Queen of the Night' bulbs I've tucked under the soil in my garden over the years.  And every spring, I wait for them to come up.

So....spot any black tulips...?

Still, my plain old red and yellow tulips are proving to be willing and co-operative models as usual, and this week I'll be painting some more canvasses like this...

  1. I do believe that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. What does it really means to us? It only explains that true beauty is not in our physical aspects but in our inner aspects. In short, attitude or character because what you have shown is what people think of you. Beauty comes out naturally. Visit my site #triciajoy for some terrific offer that I am sure you can't refuse.
