Hey beautiful…. yes, you! You are making the Spring flowers bloom! These are Passionate Pinks! I am always torn by my tulips (actually got the bulbs on a painting trip to Holland a few years ago)… whether to cut them and have them in the house/studio, or let them open up in the sunshine. I usually dither so long they stay in the garden. I completely understand Tulip Mania.
"Look here in the garden bed
Something beautiful is growing…
Bright, shaped like a cup - all red
Tulips open to the sun…."
When I was a little girl we sang this song in school, and I had no idea what a tulip was. We lived in a multi-family house and there were no flowers in the yard. My husband made sure I fell in love with all kinds of flowers, and now I can't see my life without them! I think gardening is mind-expanding.
These are fun, and they are the Girls Just Wanna Paint submission for the topic this month of "Open". Check out the other paintings HERE.
