Early May 2012
Last summer I received a gift certificate from my 'school team'.
A week later.
It was a small token to recognize my 'retirement' from teaching.
I decided to buy over 100 tulip bulbs and plant them in the garden.
So in October of last year I cleared out an overgrown bed and started planting the bulbs.
I wanted all one colour but waited too long to purchase them, so I bought two varieties.
One was 'Ile de France' and the other 'Canadian Liberator'.
Ile de France
I wasn't sure if they would match and had to wait till this week to see.
I turned out alright with one being a more orange red....the 'Canadian Liberator'.
I am happy with how they turned out and they brighten up the northwest corner of the garden.
Every time I go by them I will remember the time I spent as a teacher.
It's funny, since my 'retirement' I have learned a lot from our garden.
I have learned to sit, look around me and listen
to what the garden is teaching me.
