Red Tulips


" Are these tulips?"  I asked myself. I wasn't sure from afar so I had to walk closer.  "Oh my, they are!" It was my first time to see real tulips and was so fascinated to see them up close. These were the 2 flowers I first saw....

I didn't know there will be more surprises few steps away.


My camera started to work hard, and my dear husband, who was ready for meetings, had to wait to give me time to enjoy a unexpectedly pleasant sight along the sidewalk.


It was a real treat to see these red blooms! I could stay there and wait for more of these buds to open.



I saw these gorgeous, red tulips in front of Times Square in Causeway Bay, Hong Kong the week after Valentine's Day. I believe they were meant for the love month celebration.

'Mid the sharp, short emerald wheat, scarce risen three fingers well,
  The wild tulip at the end of its tube, blows out its great red bell,
    Like a thin clear bubble of blood, for the children to pick and sell.
