Photo of the day: TASTY TULIPS


TASTY TULIPS: While wandering through the 14th Street farmers market in Union Square Saturday early morning, it was the early morning’s sunlight as it illuminates the flowers that always catches your eyes. As I was busy looking through the lens photographing some displays of tulips on a table, I heard this voracious munching and slobbering sound at my feet. There was Frida, this loveable chocolate colored dog who evidently thought that tulips are just about the tastiest things for breakfast…burp.
Tiptoe through the window
By the window, that is where I’ll be
Come tiptoe through the tulips with me
Oh, tiptoe from the garden
By the garden of the willow tree
And tiptoe through the tulips with me
Knee deep in flowers we’ll stray
We’ll keep the showers away
And if I kiss you in the garden, in the moonlight
Will you pardon me?
And tiptoe through the tulips with me
Tiny Tim

    The dog was probably thirsty! The first time I saw Tiny Tim was in 1966. I was with my boyfriend who was studying photography at the time and he wanted to take photos . We went to a small club where Tiny Tim and Spanky and Our Gang were playing. The thing I remember about Tiny Tim was how tall and stringy his hair was. He entered the club with brown paper shopping bags, promptly sat down and applied gobs of Pond’s cold cream to his hands.
