My tulip mania

This Mother’s Day, the baker surprised me with a bouquet of purple tulips.  Believe it or not, this is one of the few times he actually gave me flowers.  Tulips are not my favorite flowers, but this particular bunch constantly draws my attention.  It is that purple breaking in the white that enhances the beauty of the flower.  Now I finally understand the Dutch tulip mania that is told in Michael Pollan’s The Botany of Desire
Are not they gorgeous?

They just look naturally happy.

Now I know why the Dutch would disperse all their wealth for tulip bulbs.

Now I am a convert.
