Spring is...trying. We're hoping for a bit of sun this weekend as we head to the Tulip Festival! For now, though, if I want a bit of sunshine I have to create it myself! Tulips are my favorite flower....so inviting, with a promise of things to come as they slowly change from a shy little flower to a lovely, open work of art. (Side note: Elora will be playing the part of Pinky the Tulip in her upcoming play Finding Spring and was ecstatic to be cast as Mama's favorite flower!) Every time I walk past these flowers my spirits get a little lift and I can almost feel the sunshine coming. Almost.
