The grocery store had buckets and buckets of tulips. In September! I had to grab a few white bunches. I just had to do it. They were just calling my name. As were the big white pumpkins at 5 bucks a pop. Just like that the dining room table was awash in autumnal splendor with a nod to Spring. What a funny combination, tulips and pumpkins, but I also kind of like the representation of opposing seasons mixed together.
