Photo Hunter — "addiction"

Could have posted chocolate, or ice cream,
or cigarettes (kicked that one, fortunately).
I don't have a garden—or a green thumb—so I wait 
all winter for the flower people to return
 to the greenmarket so I can feed my addiction 
for fresh flowers.  (If you think of them as 
food for the soul, it hardly even seems like an indulgence.)
Well, the flower folks ARE back—last week, daffodils; 
this week, tulips; next week, lilacs!

[See more "addictions" here.]

    Not to mention these stalwarts of the ilk.

  4. Beautiful and unusual tulips! My addiction was 'good' too.
