Thanks for the reminder about our Master Gardener. I really haven't done anything other than admire them.

Very pretty, but some of those tulips look suspiciously like daffodils.

Thanks somebunny for a happy memory. Daffodils are my favorite flower.

When I was first married to my second husband he was coming home from a trip and at Maverick Station there was a flower vendor. He was selling daffodils. There were five flowers in each bunch for twenty-five cents. He brought me home four bunches. When he got home he gave each kid a dollar and sent them down to clean the vendor out. They all came home with four bunches. I had 100 daffodils that night. I was one happy person.

Lol everyone! Yes there were daffys too! It really is beautiful this time of year where they grow the most tulips in the world.(according to one if the farms on the tour). It really was a lovely day that we shared with DH's siblings and our daughter and grandbabies!
