Sneak a Peek Week 12 - Tulips

Do you remember the song "Tip Toe Through the Tulips"

made famous by Tiny Tim in the 60's?

I know that possibly, many of you weren't born yet,

so here are the lyrics:

Tiptoe to the window, by the window that is
where I'll be...
Come tiptoe through the tulips with me!

Tiptoe from your pillow, to the shadow of a
willow tree....
And tiptoe throughout the tulips with me!

Knee deep in flowers will stray, we'll keep the
showers away.
And if I kiss you in the garden, in the moonlight,
will you pardon me?

Come tiptoe through the tulips with me!

Well, my tulips have popped...

let's take a moment


tip toe through the tulips in my garden:

And for some other blooming delights:

the blossoms of my Japanese Flowering Cherry

which is in it's full glory...

pink blooms on another flowering cherry...

some white freesias flowing over in a pot by my kitchen door.

and some Cheerfulness white daffs under the Monterey Pine.

I do believe spring is really here....

I am now off to work in my garden.

I want to grab a handful of freesias right now KAREN. I love their smell and beauty. Glad you have a chance to be out working in your garden. Our bulbs are just about to come up!
