The tulip tale continues

By Mary Beth Breckenridge Published: April 20, 2012

 Regular readers might remember my story last spring on Patty Tubbs, a Medina County gardener who feels her mother’s presence in her flower garden. Tubbs went outside on Mother’s Day 2010 to find a single white tulip in bloom, which she had never planted -- but which was her mother’s favorite flower.

 Those readers might also remember that, shortly after the story was published in 2011, I found a single white tulip growing in my yard. We figured it was Tubbs’ mom, Gerry Williams, saying thanks for the story.

 Well, Tubbs emailed a picture to me of what she found in her yard this week when she returned home after having spent most of the winter in Florida.

 I haven’t seen any white tulips at my house. Maybe, as Tubbs suggested, her mom’s playing tag, and next year is my turn to be “it.”
