Cara: "Well, do you like my new lipstick?? I know I never ever wear such bright colours but I loved this red!! I LOVE it! I think it's because I have been obsessed with tulips and have been painting them over and over...do you think? Do you think it's too red? Just TOO bright for me?"
(I have been suffering from a tulip-alooza all summer and have indeed been painting tulips on everything. I think I'll need some wooden shoes, too. And some dutch cheese. And a peppermill.)"
I recently purchased a canvas print of "Nan's Tulips" by Cara, and wrote the girls to express my appreciation, and to tell them about my own connection to (and slight obsession with) tulips.
