Charlie, these photographs

Are about the tulips

That I buy in vases at Walgreen Drug Store


I’ve brought three of the vases home

From visits to the store to pick up prescriptions


I enjoy watching the buds open

and I enjoy seeing the bulbs and roots through the glass


I find the foliage to be as pretty as the blossoms

This one had really graceful leaves


I noticed that most of the roots didn’t touch the water

I think that deprived the leaves of strength

And caused them to fold over so gracefully


It was interesting to me that the petals fell

Leaving the pistils, the stamens and the leaves

Intact and healthy


I enjoyed this vase of tulips very much

The blossoms were a nice shade of pink

You enjoy flowers too

And you have a good eye for them!
