Spring....

Spring, flowers, rain or snow in most cases here in Colorado...I love it.  Not the snow part...yuk, thats just annoying.  But this time of year, I just want to get in my garden and do what I LOVE to do...and thats to garden.  I like getting my hands dirty, surveying the perennials that are coming back and seriously when I see that they are coming back...its like a long lost friend.  Makes me smile.  Sadly, yes, this is very sad for me...getting into my garden is so not a reality...but I long for it.  Which is why this post is for me.  Makes me smile and brings on some anticipation for that time when I can dig into that ground and get dirty.  Enjoy the sweet tulips...come on spring...

Where did you find those gorgeous tulips? Too early for them to be up where you are...did you just go to a garden center...cool to see!

Hi Elizabeth! Thanks for stopping by my blog on FF! Something happened when I went to publish your comment, and it vanished!

I'm so glad you're following me, that's how I found you- I was very intrigued about your tulips... and you're absolutely right- they are a wonderful soapy inspiration! In fact, I have a tulip mold I've been meaning to use... would you let me post a couple of your tulip pics or a link when I post about the soaps?

Your blog is lovely- I'm now a follower...
