Free to Bloom

I bought them on faith. Back in April, beautiful tulips called to me as I approached the self-checkout at Kroger. I love to smell the flowers that grace grocery stores. If I can smell their sweet scent, I have to restrain myself not to buy them. I had to see if these tulips smelled good. They did.

I noticed that some had already bloomed. They were a gorgeous hot pink with white edges. Other bunches had partly opened blooms. So I went for one of those sets. Although the “sell buy” date on the sticker told me that maybe I shouldn’t spend three dollars to take them home, I hoped that they would bloom eventually and live longer than the already bloomed flowers.  I believed in what they could become.
