Tulip Wednesday: Week Two

Yesterday at lunch I sat in the windowed corner of the dining commons, dining on sunlight.  There were a number of us at the table, soaking in the sun like turtles on our rocks, eager for the warmth and light.  I imagine that's how the tulips are feeling.
Our cold and wet Monday yielded some sun on Tuesday and today looks promising for some more dapples of light.  We're creeping toward warmth and the prospect of flowers.
Each day when I come home, I take a walk around my flowerbeds, numbering the green shoots like a greedy banker counting her money.  Day by day, I see my flower account growing and I am glad of it.
