tip toe through the tulips

Happy Mother's Day!

Recently, my kids, my mom and I took a little trip to a local tulip festival. It was so nice to have this time together. The weather was glorious and the tulips....heavenly!

Right next to the tulips there were rows and rows of hazelnut trees. I think this photo looks so peaceful.

Happy Mother's Day to my dear, sweet mom! ;0)

Wow! That field of tulips is beautiful! I saw something like this once in Holland, Michigan. Definitely the tulip capital of the U.S. Is that by any chance where you were?
Great photos!
Happy Mother's Day to you!

Happy mother's day to you and your mom, Kim! What a great activity for you guys. I can't decide which is prettier...you or the tulips!

Happy Mom's Day to you Kim! The full picture story is great from the Tulip Festival. :)

I am amazed at that blast of color. And the lane of trees is like you said, "peaceful."

Have a great day!
