I didn’t plant this tulip. It came up from the dirt beside our backdoor the first spring we lived here. It appeared from strong, green, leafy stems. I remember wondering what color it would turn out to be. Sometimes the best gifts are the ones we didn’t know to ask for.

This is a gift, simple and lovely. I’m thankful for those who imagined these blooms that grow and bless by my backdoor. And they planted them even though they knew they wouldn’t always be around to see the pink.
