Tiptoe through the tulips

My daughter loves tulips and the colour purple and has been asking me to grow them for some time .
To keep her quiet for a bit I made her some with fabric instead .
No not quite the same as the real thing but still very pretty anyway and almost as pretty as her !

PS This is my 199th post !
