found these tulips at whole foods and had to grab them. i think flowers can brighten up a day, especially all of the overcast, rainy days we’ve been having lately. and they remind me of the semester i spent living in a castle in the netherlands with some really great emersonians. it was three and a half months of trains, moats, tulips, the vink, group excursions, peacocks, photography, hostels, long leisurely meals and so much more. hard to believe that our class is celebrating a 5 year reunion in a matter of weeks and that this year marks the 25th anniversary of the castle program. someday a castle reunion visit to the land of the dutch must be in order, but for now, i have tulips.
