The Great Tulip Fall of 2010

Oh my tulips.  I had such great plans for you.  You started out so lovely:

open

Look how full and beautiful you are!

inside

So why did you have to fall?

fall

I could have tolerated one, two or even fifty out of the two hundred of you.  That would have left me with plenty of tulips.  But no, you had to make a mass-suicide pact.  Couldn’t one of you been too chicken to follow through?! 

I don’t know what I did to make you mad.  But I promise, this fall I’ll dig you all up and make a better home for you.  Maybe you’ll want to stick around.
