Tiptoe Through the Tulips

With my own tulips from the garden I once had in the photo I thought this would make you smile at a time when smiles mean so much.

 It had to be the strange voice of Tiny Tim and his song “Tiptoe Through the Tulips”. After all, spring is in full bloom and many have been struck by spring fever. In fact, the song planted a huge smile on my face so I thought I would pass the smile on.

“Tiptoe Through the Tulips”  was published as long ago as 1929. It became a novelty hit in 1968 when a singer calling himself Tiny Time sang the song with a falsetto and ukulele.  His real name was Hebert Khaury and he was born in New York City. The singer died at the age of 64 from a heart attack. If anyone remembers he also made a sensation marrying a woman 20-year younger named Miss Vicki and together they had a daughter named Tulip.

Tiptoe through the Tulips

Does anyone remember Tiny Tim and his song Tiptoe through the tulips? It was a very silly song. But I will never forget hearing it. Every time I see my tulips bloom I think of the song. Mostly I am happy. The tulips do not last long so I enjoy them while they are here. The wind was blowing so the photo is a little blurry. But there will be more. And they come back year after year. I cut all the green plant back when they stop blooming. And I move on to the next flower. I try to add more flowers each year to my garden. I was happy to see the orange tulips in full bloom. Still waiting on the others.

  1. Beautiful photo! I love all kinds of flowers. I just got two small flowerpots with blooming dianthus flowers (I think that’s what they are called in English) and they smell lovely. Flowers always make me happy.
