Tulips


Today's picture is dedicated to Isabella of Naples, Florida who has just reached her 100th post.

Big bunches of tulips in Zurich are 75 francs a bunch, which is around £30, although you can get smaller bunches for around £12.

Here on Hyde Market yesterday they were £1.60 a bunch [thats about 3 US dollars or 2 euros].

Down in Brighton, they are a little dearer, but very reasonable at £2.95 a bunch.

they are sunshine, food and medicine for the soul."

Very nice idea! I like tulips with all their high colors but they don't last a very long time...

Hi there--thanks for the link! Flowers always look so beautiful, and make really great pictures, don't they?

That's more like it. We won't be going to Zurich for our flowers will we? Unless they sell beautiful handbags that is... ;)
