the consolation of a tulip

One could possibly put anything on the kitchen windowsill in the morning and it would look good with the sun coming in - this tulip's petals are so translucent that one can see the mesh of the window gauze through them.  I needed this tulip (broken off from a larger spray) and indeed other flowers today (some of them bought and planted from Santa Fe Greenhouses, my favorite shopping extravaganza or two of each summer) since my cold/cough/conjunctivitis/general exhaustion and malaise returned with a vengeance - having been free of colds for two and a half years, this one is taking delight in investigating every corner of my body and seeing how it can affect it.
