Spring Fling

An old cabin taken off the side of a home, has found a new home and now an office.

Looks like around the Netherlands
Can one ever have enough lilacs. As children we went down the alleys and picked some for our mothers. They don't last long as cut flowers , but sure offer a nice fragrance to your home.

Gene, I think we may be related. LOL On a gravestone in a small cemetery.

Even the smallest blooms
Can really be the best
Nice fragrance never the less.

Sunday Stroll: Tulip Time

It's hard to pick
My ultimate favorite
At tulip time.



Many of you know I plant lots of tulip bulbs in the fall. It was the hardest to leave my last home with hundreds surrounding it. I use these to decide what varieties to add each year. This tiny Iowa town of Pella, with it's Dutch heritage, was recently voted 17th nationally as best place to live. I often drive here for good pastries, meat, cheese and fish Iowa's largest lake, Lake Red Rock, nearby.













This is but a tip of the iceberg , with lots more to share.
