The Second Happy Friday

Hello, and welcome to the second Happy Friday of the year.  Thanks to all the bloggers who joined in last week, I hope there will be even more of you spreading the happiness this week!

What’s been making me very cheerful this week has been tulips.  One of the compensations of January is being able to bring spring into the house long before it’s arrived outside. And it’s also a great compensation for having to go out shopping in the cold when you can treat yourself to bunch of colourful springtime. ( And so much less calorific than chocolate!)

I love the way tulips keep on growing after you pick them, going from stiff and stately when they first arrive…

But I couldn’t resist this photo when my own tulips decided to copy the painting…
