The tulips have arrived in full bloom really early this year. I mean, really really early. The Canadian Tulip Festival runs from May 7-24 and it's the special 65th anniversary edition. But because of the wonderful early spring we've been having, I doubt there'll be too many tulips left standing for the actual festival! This morning Lilah and I took a walk down to see them. Sigh. I love tulips. There's just something about them that appeals to me. There was just one problem, my battery pack ran out and I forgot the back-up. I know, it's not the first time that's happened. Lilah was quite thrilled, I'm sure, since it meant she got her (promised) ice-cream ahead of schedule! And get this, tomorrow the weather forecast is calling for rain showers or wet flurries, a low of 1°C and a minus windchill, of course. What is going on? I'm glad I got a few pictures of the tulips today. Now I'm away to bring in the beautiful geranium hanging basket that I bought earlier, in Costco. Crazy weather!
