Bill's tulips

Unlike the tiny "wild" tulips in our yard, I planted these especially for Bill --- he loves red tulips!

Four of them came up this year . . . . true to form, our "tulip thief" stole one --- this person only takes one at a time over several days.

So last week, I cut the remaining tulips and brought them inside so BILL could enjoy them instead of the thief. And later the same day, a wind averaging around 60 MPH came up --- it would have torn them apart!

* the rest of the story:
Sometime this morning, Bearcat jumped on the table (where he is not allowed) to sniff the tulips (he loves flowers!), knocking the vase over and breaking them apart! I just had to laugh.
