a majestic stance
though tossed by some wicked winds –
a wilting tulip

in this short stint above ground
life with riches of color

The only one of its kind in my garden. It did not start life with me as a loner. Unfortunately, its siblings have gone on to nourish the family of squirrels that frequent my yard. But, here she stands, pretty and pink.

Front Yard Planter


It would be interesting to see this planter fully loaded. Note to self….a return visit is in order.  I came across this on a long walk from the car to the Cherry Blossom Festival in the Botanic Garden this past sunday. I love the color too!!
