Taking Time for Tulips






Picking these as my favorite this year.



Tulips in the square



Tulips tulips everywhere.




For 32 years of my life



I have lived within 20 miles of a Tulip Festival.



And so you see...



That is the reason....




I am a crazy for tulips girl !

I love this season!



I think I must be a tiny bit Dutch
I love them so much. 



So much beauty for such a short window of time.

Sometimes I visit several times.



In the Garden 



it just makes you take a deep breath and sigh. 



 For a small moment in time...

They create in me a Happy high!

This is the magic of tulips. 




A sea of Tulips...



Simple and Sweet...



Dancing by the street.



Pella,  Iowa in all of it's glory. 



If I missed it I would be sad. 



It is always beautiful every year. 



Tulips

You do something to me that I can't explain.

I live with tulips in my home....

it seems wherever I roam....

I must be a flower girl deep inside. 



Until we meet again next year...

I love you!!


Janita

Oh seeing all these tulips has brightened my morning. It's grey and raining where I am today. You've captured so many different beautiful colours. It's so special how flowers can touch our heart.

Thanks for the beautiful tulip pictures! I have seen more of them today on your blog as I can find in my hometown Dokkum and surroundings up north in the province of Friesland in The Netherlands :>)
Love the windmill photo, too!
Cheers,

Jeanneke.
