The joy of spring’s colorful tulips

I love flowers.  All flowers.  And in the springtime, some of my favorites are the colorful tulips.  They are such happy looking flowers and always make me smile.

I was feeling a little envious of my son and his girlfriend who traveled to the Keukenhof tulip gardens in the Netherlands this month.

But today, I walked by my favorite garden in New York City, the Jefferson Market Garden in Greenwich Village; it was filled to the brim with blooming tulips and other bulbs.  The garden is open to the public on Friday’s from 10am-5pm (donations accepted as it is a volunteer garden) and it is well worth the visit, especially in April.  Here are a few snapshots of my favorite flowers there.

How to make spring come early

I am beyond ready for spring to begin.  This New York City winter has been long, cold, windy and just plain TOO LONG!  I’m guessing I’m not the only one with the winter blues.  I just sold this little painting to a friend who lives in the mountains of Colorado where I know her property is still under piles of snow.  Hopefully hanging this in her home will make her spring come a little earlier.
