    Beautiful! Our tulips are just poking out of the ground, but it’s supposed to snow this weekend, so I’m glad they haven’t bloomed yet. Hopefully they’ll make it through the weekend ok. I’m also hoping that this is our last bout of cold weather for the year.

    Gorgeous pictures. We had snow last weekend and this weekend is just gorgeous. Our trees are just starting to bud.
