Only Yellow Tulips

Every spring a little patch of red and yellow tulips pop up in my backyard. I didn’t plant them, perhaps it was the previous owner. Regardless of the years, the weeds, the fall leaves that never get raked in that part of the yard, they manage to find their way through. This year I found only yellow. Where did the red go?

Tulips for Kim 2I can’t say that I’m sad to see only the yellow, I actually prefer them. My dining room is yellow anyway. It’s like living in sunshine.Tulips for Kim 1It’s nice to know that even though my gardening days are finished and the weeds are taking over, some elements of beauty survive and break through. It’s kind of like a metaphor for life – leave something beautiful behind that will blossom anew year after year.
