A Thoughtful Gift of Two Tulips in January was the Inspiration for this 'Franciscan Desert Rose' Tablescape
and a bit of Reflecting on my Childhood.
You see January is NOT my favorite month.
Here's why....it rained, snowed, blowed dirt, and ruined every Birthday Party my Mama planned for Me.
I am a Fair Weather Fan, and if I'd had my druthers, I'd have picked April, May, June or July for a Birthday!
Why I wouldn't even mind being April, May or June instead of Sue...at least I'm not named January!
Now back to Tulips.
I always associate Tulips with early Spring, Dutch WindMills and the color Red, and I've never given them a thought as a January Fresh Flower.
In fact the only Fresh Flower I associate with January is the Carnation.
It's the Month of Januarys Flower.
Garnet is the Birthstone...I wouldn't have minded being named Garnet.
Birthdays? yes, in a general way...for the most, if not for the best of men...(and women)...You were born (I suppose) on a certain day: So was I: or perhaps in the night: what then?- James Kenneth Stephen
That's It!!! The reason....I was Born At Night In A Snow Storm! Oh Goodie...now I have a January BirthNight to look forward to...I hope it Snows!
