Looking For Spring

After stitching with the FABs this morning, I headed out to the tulip fields--today is the first day of the local Tulip Festival.

It may be 20 degrees out, but we are still within winter's grasp as there are no tulips in bloom yet. The owner of the fields told me that by next weekend there would be "some" colour and hopefully within two weeks the fields will be in full bloom. However, he added that it might be longer as there is snow in the forecast for next Thursday!

On the way home, I stopped to take pictures of Mt. Cheam. It is a gorgeous mountain that overlooks our small town. No matter where you are in town, you can get a view of Mt. Cheam.



I managed to find this small plot of daffodils--the only sign that Spring can't be far off!

  1. I would love to have a mountain in my back or front yard like that. Gorgeous! And, I cannot wait to see the tulip pictures again. It must be spectacular to see them in person with all the rows of wonderful color.

  3. Great minds do think alike! Beautiful majestic mountain pictures. You'll have to pay another visit to the tulip fields in a week or two. You need a do-over for sure :)
