Spring’s Promise

Each tulip bloom arrived in a closed cup of fiery orangey-red edged with a deep border of egg-yolk yellow.

As they got used to the warmth of the room, the tulips gradually let their guard down and opened up a bit more each day, wider and wider, like eyes popping wide in surprise until finally each petal was sprawled out like a sunbather on the sand.

Their huge splashy selves a hope, a promise, a reminder of how good it will feel to walk in the warm spring sunshine again.
