May Flowers: Tulips

Hello there. How have you been? Lately, Portland has been soaking up the sun but – alas – the rain is back and it looks like it’s staying for the whole week…ugh. Baby and I are doing well, for the most part – my back and hips are not exactly pleased with my growing tummy, so I’ve been trying to take it easy but the nursery is 95% complete so look for a post with pictures coming up soon! In the meantime, I thought I would share with you some shots I took when we visited the Tulip Farm in late April…I just loved all the vibrant colors!

As much as I admire the bright, cheery hues of the other tulips, this dark and moody violet one is my favorite. Such a beauty, isn’t she?

When I asked Grace what her favorite part was….

the Pony Ride, of course!

We are planning on going to the local Peony Farm this weekend. Can’t wait! I adore Peonies!

What’s your favorite flower? Hope you are enjoying Spring wherever you are.

xo,

    Ivy,
    I love Peonies also. Can’t wait to see the pic’s. Have fun a the Peony farm.

  3. I think all of us who live here on the West Coast have a love affair of tulips. Your photographs are a delight. I am so looking forward to seeing the photographs of peonies. They are among my old-time, absolute favorite flower. Growing up on the prairies the blooming of the peonies meant that summer was truly on its way. Virginia
