Big red is actually my neighbor's tulip from his flowerbed that's just over my backyard fence. He planted big huge red and yellows and I couldn't resist. I felt like it made the perfect December image, still beautiful and Spring and lively and bright but with the typical Christmas colors.
Thanks for spending the year with my 2017 Bloom Calendar! I hope it's brightened up the first of every month.
