Day 601's signs of spring


Pretty white tulips that Wes gave me on Valentine's Day. I love tulips -- they are such a trip. No matter how much time you spend arranging them, they pretty much do what they want. They also continue to grow in a vase of water, which I find so amusing.


I've been admiring these daffodils all week. They're on the gorgeous campus of Samford University, which is close to my office. I had to drive on campus to get a photo, but unfortunately, they're all facing the street! I think you get the idea. Don't be too decieved about the Alabama weather, it was only 45 degrees today, despite the sunshine and green grass in this photo.


And finally, a gratituitous picture of Maddie. She doesn't really have anything to do with spring, but she's pretty!

Looks like you and Wes have spring fever - I guess we are all getting it after a beautiful week last week and now another cold blast....

Happy Birthday, JL!

White tulips are my favorite. I went to a wedding when I was in college (for a friend of the family) and the bridesmaids all had simple white tulip bouquets. I was so entranced with that idea that I did the same thing when I got married! Little did I know that white tulips are not exactly in season in November, so my parents must have paid an arm and a leg for them. Oh well!
