It was a pleasure to return from vacation and see our tulips at the house in full bloom. the weather was so cool and damp while we were away, that the blooms slowed down. Typically they are only in bloom for a day or 2 until the deer eat them. There are 4 colors and they are beautiful. Over the next few days I will be sketching each of them.
