Beyond the Lone Islands

Wednesday, 20 January 2010


Yesterday I got flowers delivered to my door. By that I mean a surprise delivery by a messenger; not brought by someone coming to visit. This is something that happens very rarely in my life, probably not even once in a decade...

It was a lovely boquet of red tulips, from the friend to whom I sent the CDs last week.

Tulips are a reminder of spring, so they inspired me to take down the last of the Advent-Christmas decorations today (the electric candle-lights in the windows). The outdoor lights on the balcony railing however will stay until some snowfree and dry day. Which probably means they will be left in peace for some time yet. We've had more snow falling over the past couple of days.

Oh what a nice and beautiful gesture! You need some flowers with that kind of cold weather to spruce up your home!

great surprise. lucky you. I love tulips as well. They are cheerful and gay and do remind us there is a Spring, somewhere.
