You can't go wrong with tulips!
Did you get the snow that hit us today? We're snowed in, and I thought of you over there, and wondered if you'd finally get to use your salt!

I have always loved tulips! Do you know that the stems continue to grow longer in a vase? They are such cool flowers!

Tulips are anything but lame! What beautiful pictures. Hubs bought my little girl some for V-day and she loves having them in her room.
Great post!

Tulips and daffodiles. Love them, but I'm not as talented at arranging them as you are. Maybe it's the vase. No, that excuse won't work, as I have lots and lots of vases to choose from. I'm just hopeless.

Rita said...

Since we are buried in an ice storm today it was nice to have this touch of spring to give me hope that it will arrive soon.

Thanks for the visit and the lovely comment.

Su-sieee! Mac said...

Lame? What are you talking about? Tulips are huge in my book. I like them the best when they've opened. They have such wild and passionate insides for such prim outsides.

Jenny said...

Tulips are terrifically charming flowers and so was the picture of Mona Lisa taking a nap in yours!

This was a sweet link this week.

Thanks for the smile!

A+

I love pots of tulips in the house at the very beginning of spring. I must admit, however, that they are not my favorite in the garden. I have always thought they look to fussy.

hahah!!! Love Tulips and love your T post! Hey...Mona Lisa Mae seems to find the best places to hang out! (Maybe she is saying "T"ah-dah!"

Blessings & Aloha!
LOVE your sense of humor!
(I'm still keeping my eyes open for a Mona Lisa Mae :o) She is tooo adorable...she reminds me of a large sock monkey that my grandma gave me when I was little.

oops! I almost forgot to say-Thank you so much for stopping by!!!
