I need to rant just a little bit.  It has been a cold, as in record cold, Spring here in the midwest.  Again this week, the first days of May will see our temps going from the high 80s to a frost or a freeze!  Crazy stuff.

Last weekend, I had a chance to go to the local botanical garden here and was just giddy about all of the wonderful tulips.  It was flower-power in motion--my mood lifted from cloudy to sunny and I snapped some goodness to share with you.  The pictures will explain themselves, but don't be too surprised if I add a comment here and there anyway--I am a blogger!


 I know these aren't tulips, but gorgeous phlox

 Again, not tulips, but beautiful!

Yes, tulips and wonderful sculpture

Hope your mood is lifted and your spirits are brighter!  And Happy Birthday to my wonderful son, if you're reading this (my kids are a little camera shy or I would have added a picture.)

Thanks for stopping by, as always.

    This is just what I needed on this dull and dreary day.
    Best Wishes

    1. Thanks for the visit. Right now, I'd love to see the sun for more than a moment. It's been very cloudy and windy here.
