Rhymes With Fuchsia

Friday Flowers

Do you remember the tulips in the office park where I work? Vast, color-coordinated displays of them, every bulb complete with leaves and flower, every flower perfect.

Like everyone else, the landscapers have had to deal with budget cuts. This year the tulips are sparser, more random, some beds a glorious jumble of color — but with obvious method to the madness — and here and there one tulip amid the rugosa, seemingly sprung there by accident.

If you're going to New Hampshire tomorrow, I hope to see you there.


  • Do I remember your tulips? Darling, I have trouble remembering my own phone number. You could show me the same phots year after year and I would continue to be enthralled. But I rather like their new system. The random mix bags from the growers are always a better deal, pricewise, and the variety delights my eyes.

    Random plantings might be blamed on squirrels. They have given us a number of peculiar surprises over the years.
