Growing Tulips

Growing Tulips

Life happens before my eyes.

The colour, smell, shape – a flourishing flower, carries an elegance and beauty, which turns me into a magician instead of just a gardener.

A cold, damp spring delays your appearance. I watch you grow, tulips.

You wait for the warmth to let you break free from your outer skin.

You tease me with a small reveal of colour.

The warming weather makes you happy (and me too!)

Wake up and bring a brilliance to the day!

There you are, in perfect form.

Welcome to the world!
