Think spring!!

One reason I miss Washington State -- a real and substantial SPRING

Since I've been a little under the weather the past few days, I was thinking that it would be nice that the weather would change both figuratively and literally.

It's time for the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival (April 1 - 30). When we had visitors while we lived in Seattle (actually Everett), we always took them to the Skagit Valley to see the tulip fields if they were in season. I love it there. My secret desire has always been to own a flower shop. To see the tulip fields in bloom --incredible.

Makes me feel better already!

 Barns and tulips

Oh, and let's not forget the iris farms. Beautiful!

Swissmiss: You've been ill? I honestly couldn't tell. Your tongue has been as sharp as ever.


Get well soon.
