We don't need to drive far to see tulip fields...
as the Tulips of the Valley are just across the river from our place.
Heidi called on Friday...
to see if I might want to join them on a trek to the tulip fields sometime soon.
We realized we better go right away...
or we would miss them this year...
since this was the last weekend the fields were open.
Off we went.
Heidi, Maggie, Lucy and Grammy.
And when we arrived...
Maggie couldn't believe her good fortune.
Her good friend and neighbour was arriving at the very same time.
Tiptoeing through tulip fields with friends makes it all the more fun!
Lucy thought so too.
Though some of the fields had already been mowed...
...we still found lots of colour.
...and bright reds.
Lucy really wanted to do a little picking!
For the record ~ 2013!
Maggie and her friend skipped around the entire field.
They picked up the pace a little when they noticed a real-life princess standing in the flowers.
Tulips make a great backdrop for wedding photos...
don't you think?
She made it!
(Lucy that is)
Farewell to the tulips of 2013...
at least those on Seabird Island.
I will continue to enjoy the tulips in my garden for another week or so.
It's been a busy weekend.
I'll be back to tell you about it...soon.
