Tulips for the baby

Filed under: Family — Janice @ 8:39 pm

I bought myself some tulips today. But they really are for my new niece, EJ. I couldn’t resist the tulips.

I have always had a love of tulips. Tulips were easier to grow in Amarillo where I grew up and we always had them in the garden and as a little girl I remember vividly going out each morning, counting the tulips, and coming back  to tell Mother how many tulips were blooming. I felt like that was my job.

When my sister married a man from Holland, tulips became even more sentimental to us all. We all love the country and the people we know there. My new niece is slightly more than one-fourth Dutch since her grandfather is solidly Dutch, but her grandmother is at least a tiny portion Dutch. I know the mother’s side of her family is Italian, but I don’t know much more. Once she can hold a pencil, little EJ and I will start work on genealogy together.
