It’s all in the details

I titled this short piece (It’s all in the details) based on the above picture.  Hopefully, you also agree, there is beauty in wood, and in this case one of the most easily recognized and loved flowers – the tulip!  Someone once described tulips. . . . .

“They are not too elegant, too romantic, too big, too small, or too bright; the tulip is always just right. . . . like a favorite pair of jeans or fresh-baked cookies. . . . .. to express genuine coziness and comfort in all of the right ways.

The tulip originated centuries ago in Persia and Turkey . . . . . most likely commenting on the Turkish tradition of wearing tulips in one’s turban, Europeans mistakenly gave tulips their name, which comes from the Persian word meaning turban.

Tulips are now grown throughout the world, but people still identify cultivated varieties as “Dutch tulips.”

This is truly one beautiful sailboat.  I walk past it every time I visit the Western Flyer.
