A Moment of Hope #8

We are living in some scary times right now. I am old and have lived through others but this one is somehow different and maybe more frightening. So until it is over each day I plan to post an image that provides calmness and a moment of zen. We all need a lot of moments like these right now.

As the pandemic continues so does Spring. Time to be looking for tulips as the daffodils begin to fade. Each flower is a moment of beauty and joy and provides hope. These are from are garden in Pittsburgh a few years ago before the deer ate them. Tulips are like candy for deer.

First Tulips of Spring

Our Pittsburgh Garden–Rembrandt Tulip

Our garden in Regent Square is starting to look good after three years of work. Each year the deer have come up from Frick Park and eaten our tulips. A few have survived their evil appetite. The trick is to plant them surrounded by Daffodils.

Early Tulips

Spring happens later in the mountains. At 1700 feet above sea level, tulips don’t really bloom until Mothers Day. These are the first tulips of the year in our pocono mountain garden. See other images of spring and buy prints at my commercial gallery.
