Spring is sprung and so are these tulips! I brought them inside from a porch pot to enjoy their final voluptuous burst of glory. Now their dissolution is complete, sped up by the unusual weather the last two days with temperatures in the high 80's. If only this was April in Paris again for me. Visitors could ignore last year's warnings to bring a lined raincoat and gloves, and Trudy could leave her silk long underwear safely packed away, avoiding the jealousy they provoked.
