Spring Has Sprung, Again!

It’s Tulip Festival time again and this year our festival has been canceled. Because of it, I can’t go see the beautiful flower gardens or park by the fields to photograph acres of blooms. A month of activities has been canceled and the county roads are free not only from many regular drivers but from tourists as well. For locals who live by the fields, they’re happy about less traffic, but the economic hit is felt deeply in this rural farming county. No matter what, I love the flowers and am sharing an old post from 2014. If you want to see even more amazing bulb flowers, the spring of 2016’s post has two to three times the photos of this post. Enjoy! https://mariner2mother.wordpress.com/2016/04/28/spring-tulip-festival-2016/

Life Is A Journey... Not A Guided Tour

Once again, April showers brought rain, rain, and more rain. And around here, all that rain brings muddy fields. Despite all of the mud, the local tulips popped up and bloomed! Much to my pleasant surprise, we had a stretch of about 5 days of sun in a row. On the last day, I dashed over to a local tulip garden and feasted my eyes on this year’s plantings. Just beautiful, as always. Here’s a sampling for you!

I haven’t taken enough nature photos lately, but this was a great day to revel in the splendor of Mother Nature.

    One of the great takeaways of this unusual season is an appreciation for things we depend on – not only income and commerce, but also seasonal markings that sustain our souls. This feels like just that sort of thing! Here’s to the next festival – and all that we will discover in the time we wait.
