Adventure to the Tulip Fields

Of all the tulips I visited yesterday,
this soft yellow with the blush of pink
just sang to my heart.

The wind was blowing, brrrrrr it was cold, and mud was often in my steps;
but persevered I did, as it was tulips I was here to see.
There were places to sit awhile and enjoy the view, but I trudged on.

Don't you just love a pink tractor in the tulip fields?
What little girl or boy wouldn't want to peddle around
the tulips with this sweet thing.

Everywhere you looked were beautiful colors, but I just loved this mixed field so much.
It had been years since I had visited the Wooden Shoe Tulip Fields
and visiting on a stormy day ended up being just about perfect.

I hope you find something that makes your heart sing this weekend.
Happy Weekend, dear Friends!!!

Visiting you from Jeanie and so glad I did! These tulips are putting a smile on my face on a gray snowy day in CO. What a magical place to visit and dream about spring.

That's a lot of tulips! Beautiful!

Dianne said...

Thank you so much for this wonderful feast for the eyes! I had to go back and enlarge every single photo to drink in the details again and not miss anything :) What a special place.

Ginger said...

Wow. Those fields are gorgeous! I can imagine they were breathtaking in person. Thanks for sharing.

ABSOLUTELY BREATH TAKING... simple stunning, all those tulips! I'm thinking part of Heaven must look like that... or at least I hope they might! ;) ((HUGS))

Rosemary said...

That's amazing!

Jeanie said...

Oh my! When I first saw this I thought, "Wait, I didn't think she was going to Holland for awhile yet!" But you don't need to -- at least not for the tulips! This is magnificent. I was sad not to see the tulip farms when I visited and now all the more so. But perhaps one day in spring, Oregon!

Marilyn, what a gorgeous site. I can just imagine getting lost among the beautiful tulip fields. Such a beautiful flower in a small arrangement, can just imagine the beauty in an immense field. Thank you for your kind words to me about my flowers. What would life be without them?..Happy Weekend..Judy

Joy said...

How gorgeous! I'm sure they were even more beautiful in person but I surely enjoyed the pictures. Love that little pink tractor, too!

Beautiful! We were there with a friend from California a few days before you went. It's close to home and I always enjoy it - it never gets old!
