Oh, you can count on it, John! Thanks for sharing a taste of it, although, I have to say we have had a pretty mild winter here in North Carolina. Today it is 72 degrees! Nice. Just got back in from shooting. <>< #11560985

Well, it does seem to be spring here in Arizona already (and I'm loving it!!), but I don't think we will see many tulips bloom, John!! Soon the cacti will start blooming and I'm so ready for that!! So I will enjoy your gorgeous tulip, and think of the Washington flowers that will be blooming in the cold and snow and rain!! #11561032
