Is there anything more beautiful than spring?  Oh, yeah.  Autumn.  But because it's spring and the yard and gardens are beginning to come to life there seems to be nothing more beautiful than spring.  In our neck of the woods April brings the month-long tulip festival.  Visitors come from all over the United States to see the tulip farms.  It has gotten to be more and more commercial.  Until a few years ago we could go into the fields any time during the festival free of charge.  Now there's a charge for parking, charge for walking through the fields.  I don't blame the farmers.  It's a way for them to make money, but also it became a little overwhelming for visitors to pour into the fields continually.  Here are a few shots that I have taken in past years.

I'm Back!

After over a month of battling health problems...a new knee for me in March and a heart attack for my husband this week...I'm back on the computer again.  Hubby is home, but isn't out of the woods yet so I might not be very active for awhile. I hope to pop in here once in awhile with some news and info on new projects and etsy listings.  If I'm rambling it's because I'm still on pain pills and exhausted from hanging around the hospital three days watching and waiting for news.  Thank God, our daughter drove here from Seattle and acted as my chauffeur. I can't drive until I see my surgeon in a couple weeks.  And thank God for some wonderful doctors and nurses in the Bellingham, WA hospital!  They're awesome!
