I HATE winter. The snow, the cold, that salt covering my car and the coats,I HATE it all. I long for spring, green grass, bulbs blooming and the beginning of playing outside with the kids but most of all the bloom bulbs. Tulips are my absolute favorite. I love their color, their shape and their simplicity. Much to my surprise each of my peanuts got me a pot of planted tulips for valentines day. I have enjoyed them over the last few weeks and was even more surprised when our dinner guests brought me a bunch of perfectly white tulips. Ahh...a little slice of spring in the dead of winter. Perfect.
