I seldom buy flowers for our home any more because of the hay fever type allergy my son and I suffer. But yesterday at Parc de la Tête d'Or, I saw a gentleman selling tulips for the benefit of a cancer research/support organization.
Tulips. Along with cosmos and gerbera daisis, they are my favorite flowers in the whole world.
They were 5€ a bunch, but the kind, friendly monsieur gave me three bunches for 10€. The purplish-pink perfectly match the color of the flowers in my aunt's water-color painting on the wall.
