Have a bigger, better tulip show

When you buy tulip bulbs this fall, you're buying color, excitement, and pride that will be yours next spring. The sleek brown bulbs look much alike. But not the flowers. From one bulb may come a squat red double in full bloom with the early dandelions. From another you'll get, four to five weeks later, a 30-inch stem topped by an eggshaped, blue-based flower as trim as though made of wonderfully colored pink wax. So-- right off-- do recognize that in tulips you can have great variety.

"But--I didn't see the child!"

"I didn't see the child-- until it was too late to stop!" Honest as they are, these words, spoken by each of hundreds of drivers who backed over and killed a child in a home driveway last year, might as well have been left unsaid. They are a sorry consolation for those who loved the accident victims, worse for the driver who knows he should have seen, regardless of legal responsibility.

It is a nostalgic scene-- the coziness, the laughter and tears, the togetherness of the family-- so old-fashioned, so simply impossible at today's tempo.
