Tulip surprise!

Well with Spring comes ticks but also the beauty of blooming flowers.

Today I was greeted with a wonderful surprise

as I went to inspect my flower bed on the south side of our twin home.

We moved in here in September and pulled quite a bit of tall blooming weeds

in the front of the bed and added in new dirt.

So when I saw green leafy plant blooming last week, I thought this weed was

again popping up. But much to my surprise,

I was greeted by a lovely assortment

of Tulip bulbs today!

Now I really feel like Spring has indeed arrived in the Red River Valley!

And what a beautiful metaphor for life.

What may sometimes appear to be "weeds"

may indeed by a gorgeous tulip about to bloom!
