…soft pink springness……….

The last photo of my pink tulips.  Sadly one evening, I went to bed, and just as I was dozing off, I thought about refilling the tulip vase with water….but was just so tired that I said…I can’t.  And I always…always normally will get up and do the thing that I should……but this time….my eyes would not stay open….and I went to sleep….

Poor tulips….come morning, each and every one was flopped over, hanging limply over the side of the crystal vase.  I quickly filled the vase with water and hoped.  All day I watched.  First one leaf, and then a few hours later two leaves started to revive.  This morning, 3 tulip heads are standing straight….I am still hopeful that more will want to stand and see the sun……

 

….tuxedo ducks having a snack……….

Flocks of black and white ducks having a midday snack.  At least half of them have their bottoms up when viewed up close.  I have never seen so many at once.  There is another flock at the end of the rock pier.

I call them tuxedo ducks because they are distinctly black and white.
