I have been watching a tulip in our front flower bed for a while in anticipation of it blooming. I was excited to come home today (after dad's 60th [!!!] birthday in Clay) to find it had bloomed. And it is hot pink! It is the perfect complement to the pink flamingos on the porch. I really wish we had more of them. Now if only someone would come along and remove the brown leaves from the flower bed.
