Its a treat today- well, I think a treat today. I received the sweetest email from a high school friend (which by the way, I got the news that a very big reunion for my high school is this summer. By big, I mean the number- like a big number of years have gone by since I've been there, and I ask myself once again...where does the time go? Sigh. I digress....) telling me that her father had planted somewhere around 10,000 tulip bulbs last fall and thought I might like to go out and see them. Did I! Don and Chrys Tiffin live out in Lily Lake (whose name I love- it sounds like a place Anne Shirley might choose to live over Green Gables, or a t the very least decide to act out a bit from The Lady of Shallot...) and when you first turn on to their street, you don't see anything- but then you see a living riot of color, and let me tell you as I told Mr. Tiffin repeatedly- its too good. I took over 40 pictures that day- here are a handful- to what I think is going to have to be a mini-series on what I think my field of dreams would look like.
Bluebells and bleeding hearts and tulips oh my!
I think at one point I actually asked if I could just get in and lay down. Wouldn't you want to?
I think I am drooling again...it really is just too good.
It was ridiculously hard to pick out only a few for today. I didn't want you all to overdose on pretty.
The day that I was there, the rhododendrons were just starting to open themselves up- and there are a ton of them, so I can only imagine what they look like now.
Just dreamy. More from here later this week! (Thank you so much Apple!)
