Love the tulips AND the marvelous vase. I do hope you paint the waterlilies with pink and orange water - magnificent idea! I'll be waiting for you to post some items. Also glad you said they're replanting in the Tuileries and Bois de Bologne Park. As said in a Chinese proverb, "The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The next best time is now." How heartbroken the French people must have felt after that storm. Have a great weekend.
