Easter and “Spring Orgy”

Tulips and Daffs and Spring!

It is so beautiful in Atlanta this morning.  No Easter Bunny sighted, but there’s fond memories of him.  My father would hide the baskets and then let out the beagles.  It was a race whose nose was better, kids or dogs.

This is the first year we haven’t our son home for Easter. He’s in the Navy now, or about to be deployed on a boat somewhere, but he certainly calls a lot.  I think he misses the Easter bunny, too.

I am taking a short detour from the Metamorphosis Series, Bart and Laura, to post this picture of our new tulips and daffs.  Tulips are one of my favorite flowers, but they don’t do well in the South.  Where I come from (up North) we had tulips for decades….I remember one that must have been very old.  It had that ‘tulip virus’ that was all the rage in the 17th century amongst the Dutch, and since we lived in the countryside where the Dutch settled in the 16oo’s…well, we think it came from a long Dutch line.  It was a solitary tulip, but bloomed each year for many.  Here, in the South, it’s too warm.  Apparently you have to put your tulips in the bottom of the fridge for 40 days.  I plant late.

Happy Easter!

Below a short story:  SPRING ORGY

The roses are having an orgy.  They haven’t the decency to wait for the dark, but ply their lust in the soft, morning light.  Randy Graham Thomas is leering.  Madame Carriere is blushing.  Her pink silk-petaled gown flutters as she twists coyly to avoid his embrace.

By 10:30 the sun warms their scents and foreplay is over.  The wind at 11:00 entwines them and pistils and stamens are seriously at it, brushing languorously over parts an hour ago were covered discreetly. At high noon in the heat of the morning, pollen is floating all over the air and even the wide-eyed cats sitting under the tender foilage are blushing.

The garden gnome is licking his lips, while a concrete hand creeps to his crotch.

This fall there will be rosehips aplenty, red nipples packed with tiny seeds, evidence of a springtime lust.

    Happy Easter! Your garden looks like a place for relaxing with spring fever.

    Now that you have explained about the flowers, I expect the birds and the bees are next?
