I've been doing a lot of yard work lately - picking up pine needles from the front yard, washing down the porch area, and getting a little space ready to plant a rose bush eventually. It's really hard to get workers up here in the mountains, but after making several calls, I finally found a landscaper to pick up the big piles of leaves and debris that were left behind. I actually like doing yard work, and there is a sense of completion when things are kept up. I'm on a corner lot with a big front yard, and although the walkways are always washed down, the remainder of the area is all woods, and trees as tall as you can imagine. I was outside working one day, and on the side of the house I noticed two yellow Tulips all by themselves growing in the wild. I don't know how they got there, but it was a lovely sight.
I pulled them, gave them some water, and placed them on the bird house.
The next day, they were starting to wilt, so I put them in a vase with water, and they stood straight and tall.
They slowly started opening up,
until they were fully opened. The inside of a Tulip is amazing with all its detail.
Here's some more Yellow pics.
All I have to is look at this smile, and my heart smiles too. Doesn't Renecke keep the lawn up beautifully?
My surprise Tulips.
Have a cheerful week, friends.
