Tulip Madness
Vienna in Spring

A little Madness in the Spring
Is wholesome even for the King,

But God be with the Clown --
Who ponders this tremendous scene --

This whole Experiment of Green --
As if it were his own!

(Emily Dickinson)

  1. Exquisite parrot tulips in your photos, Merisi.

    Timeless words courtesy of Ms Dickenson.

    I'll be working tomorrow, and will have to miss seeing more green at the St Patrick's Day parade.

    Memory will serve.


  2. Do Mozart and Strauss become Irish for a day today? Strauss was a master fiddler like many Irish folk. Have a lovely, spring-green Saturday! :-)

  3. Frances,
    that is too bad that the St. Patrick's Day parade is doing on while you have to work!

    Paris Breakfasts,
    we are getting greener by the minute, yes! ;-)

    I don't hink so, but there are a few places where they'll tint the beer green. ;-)

    Happy St. Patrick's Day to all,

  4. A wonderful series! Makes me want to get out my paints. AND order some white parrot tulip bulbs. Plus I love the poem -- there are such bottomless depths in Emily D.

  5. an experiment in green. I love that. Such a great title. And the shades of green in all of nature. So amazing.
