Hope you enjoyed the Thanksgiving Point Tulip Festival!  

Thanks for Visiting!

    1. Carol, I know…wasn’t that darling!! It made me smile too. You probably need the umbrellas up there in the northwest! :) It is beautiful country up there, but it does rain a lot! Hope you have a great sunshiny day! :)

  2. Looks like you all had a great time at the Gardens!

    We took my mom and brother-in-law last week when they were in town. Mom was amazed at the many varieties of tulips. We missed the pink and yellow ones though – those are gorgeous!

    1. Roberta, We did have a great time at the Gardens…I am glad that you were able to make it there too. I am always amazed by the many varieties of spring blooming flowers that there are! I guess that I need to plant a few more in my yard. :) Hope you have a great day.

  3. Rita, tell your little granddaughter, thumbs up ! Beautiful pictures ! The tulips are so beautiful after a drab winter. I love the bleeding heart. We are high mountain desert and green and beautiful are not our “life”, so flowers are so welcoming this time of year.

    1. Lauraly, Thank you for your comment, I will tell my granddaughter. I agree with you that all the flowers are a wonderful welcome to spring! They just brighten our world and bring joy and happiness. Hope you have a beautiful day!
