My first love, before kayaking, are flowers. They have always “grounded” me wherever in the world I have hung my hat. It was wonderful to make it back home to The Netherlands this week from cool Minnesota to find that my backyard Dutch garden in just one short week exploded in a canvas of color. These tulips I received from a friend (for free) last fall. I couldn’t be happier at the result this Spring.
Color is also the many shades of green that are now popping out in the garden.
