Tulips, Tulips, Tulips

Who doesn't love tulips!  Just a few miles north of here there are huge tulip and daffodil fields.  The weather has been cold and wet this year so tiptoeing through the tulips has not been at the top of my list.  There was a break in the rain, not the wind and cold, so some of us in the Sweep Pea Garden Club at our church hopped in our van and drove a few miles north.

Look at all of the tulips!

The water between the rows gives you an idea of how wet things were.

The inside of the building with the displays and gift shop has these beautiful murals.

Here are some of the tulips I brought home in my Flora Doora.  If you don't have a Flora Doora you should visit and take a look.

Another bouquet in my favorite vase, my hubby gave it to me 40 years ago, that still amazes me when I think about it..

This bouquet of "cupcake flowers" was a birthday gift from a sweet friend, Vil

This spring bouquet is not only pretty it is (or was) delicious.

I think that Spring has finally arrived in the northwest.


  1. Oh, my, you probably haven't hopped over to my blog today have you?? Be it the same topic...yours is much prettier!

  2. Beautiful pictures! Looks like you had a great time.

  3. Oh, yes! It sure does look like Spring has sprung. What glorious flowers - just gorgeous! I've never seen nor heard of cupcake tulips, but I would not mind trying one ;-)

    Happy Spring!!!

  4. Beautiful pictures, gives one hope for spring. It has been very cold here too, just not as wet.

  5. Hi Sherry. The tulips are awesome. We have a place north of where I live that is a mountain covered in daffodils and jonquils. They have a festival every year, but I've never been able to go. I just wanted to introduce myself as another one of the May for Me girls. I'll be following you. :)

  6. my allergies love your blog today - lol just beautiful.... I am with May for Me and a new follower of your blog - hope you stop by and follow back... I am so excited for May...


  7. These tulip fields are amazing. Your pics remind me of traveling in the Netherlands and seeing these fields of flowers for the first time. Here in Indiana we only have fields of corn and soybeans!!!!
