Tiptoe through the tulips

Spring is about pollen

(Atchoo!)

And being knee-deep in flowers.

When you’re surrounded by petalled reminders of joy,

You just can’t help smiling…

Especially if you’re a dog.

  53. Greetings, Lady Fi, from California and nearly the side of a milk carton I’ve been gone so long. Hope all is well and I’m loving the flash player that shows your gorgeous photos. I’m trying to stretch my atrophied brain and getting ready to move back into blogging so I stopped by my blog (hadn’t even looked in six months) and saw your post and wanted to revisit old friends. It’s still GORGEOUS where you are but then you always find the beauty and share it!
