Tulip Rules

I’m not a flower person. Sure I love the colors and even the smell of some of them, but as a whole I’ve left flower identification to others. The only exception to this rule is tulips.

Growing up on the farm, we had a mother cat that would take her new kittens to the tulip beds to learn life skills. I was always worried the kitties would get lost so I made it my job to get return them to safety.

Every time I see a bed of purple or red tulips I can hear someone reminding me, “Don’t tromp on the tulips. The cats will find their way out.” It is also one of the reasons I stop to capture an image.

After all, you never know, some kid might tromp on them looking for kittens.
