Photo a Day: Flower/Something that Makes You Sad
No, flowers do not make me sad. Let me 'splain.
I love my tulips. Love them love them. They are my first flowers to bloom in the spring. (Actually, they are my only flowers that bloom at the moment. I've had others before, but none that have done as well as my tulips.)
They are my first sign that the long, long Idaho winter is finally melting away. They are so beautiful.
What makes me sad is they are only a spring flower. I would love if they lasted all spring and summer. And I know that's why I need to get other later-blooming flowers. But like I said, whenever I've gotten summer bloomers they've never actually done all that well in the "bloom" or "grow" department.
I do better with bushes. Really hardy, impossible-to-kill bushes.
