Serene Tulips

I found a half-eaten hyacinth bulb on the sidewalk. One of the forced hyacinths, my February hyacinths, that i just planted in the ground. Some cute little rodent--squirrel or chipmunk--was eating it for breakfast.

This is the reason i plant my tulips (and hyacinths) in pots. That way i can have my tulips and a squirrel can eat them too.

Oh, for years i fought with the squirrels and chipmunks. I tried all sorts of methods to prevent them from eating my tulip bulbs. Eventually, i decided to accept things as they are. This is called serenity or equanimity.

I can have beautiful tulips on the front step, and a beautiful peaceful mind.
