Welcome Spring!

Isn't this photo gorgeous? I know I love fields that go on for what seems like forever filled with flowers like this! This is in the Skagit valley here in the state of Washington, but it looks like it could be in Denmark-eh? It is just a tad north of us and not a bad drive at all.

I just love living in the Pacific Northwest~

what a blessing it is to this L.A. Girl!

Every spring or I should say the month of April they have a tulip festival there. Each year of the almost ten years we have lived here I have said we are going to go, and then never make it! Last year winter drug on and on which meant a slow start for the tulips and a short season. This year I am going for Pete's sake!!! I can hardly wait!!! I will take photos to share of course. I know it is a few weeks away but I am so excited and I just had to share! I thought you might enjoy this photo since it is the first weekend (officially) of Spring-YaY!

Have a wonderful sunny weekend!

  4. Hi Tam,

    Every time I see a gorgeous garden picture, it's from that area. It's got to be the very best climate for growing. You are a lucky girl to be sure! :)

  5. What a gorgeous photo---I look forward to you sharing your trip to see them blooming this year. I LOVE that Tinkerbell pillow you made for your Grand Girl. Mine (nearly 3) loves The Wizard of Oz--I just found a cute print with the characters on it and plan to make a little blanket or pillow! Dana

  7. Mrs. Slug says: "Tulip is one of the sweetest words spoken from these two slug lips! Have an enjoyable slide, Love from all of us slugs at Slug's Rest!.....Tonight, we bake BROWNIES! And we shall frost them with chocolate frosting and top them with multicolored sprinkles in honor of the rain! We saw lots of slugs and heard many ribbits of frogs while we were out on the sidewalk for our evening sliiiide. Love ya Tam! Love Mrs. Slug

  8. P.S. - Has anyone inquired about the purchase of your fine slug products yet? You make the bestest crafty stuff. I enjoy my set of handcrafted Tam slugs every day when I come home. They are proudly displayed on my mantle, and visitors to Slug's Rest are always enthralled when they see them. They are by far my favorite keepsakes! Thanks again Tam!
