Friday Field Trip - Spring!

As I sit here watching snow flurries outside my window, I thought I'd share share some cheerier pictures of spring flowers. Thanks to Mom for sending them. Enjoy!



















Have a great weekend, everyone. I'll be back Monday with more craft tips and other tidbits from the Pikes Peak Writers Conference. And I hope to have some happy moving news as well.

Thanks, Mason. The movers are supposed to arrive this morning, so I imagine we'll have a busy weekend going through our "stuff" to see what will fit where.

Beautiful pics! Lilacs are my all-time favorite flower.

I'm heading to the tulip gardens in Holland this weekend. If you feel the need for more spring pictures, check out my blog next week.

Thanks for sharing.

Riley - should be beautiful. Will the Keukenhof be open? We had the pleasure of being able to tour it when we were in the Netherlands. I know you'll have a great trip -- and if you'd like to be a Friday Field Trip guest and share some photos here, I'd love to have you!

Riley Quinn said...

Yes, I'm going there tomorrow. Sure, count me in for Friday. I'm sure I'll have tons of photos. I'm always taking photos.

Beautiful. We hope to make a trip over to our local Botanical Garden over the weekend. Hopefully it won't rain.

Terry Odell said...

Riley - send me an email.

Debra - Haven't found local Botanical Gardens--but the scenery at Garden of the Gods is spectacular.

Terry,
Those photos are beautiful! We have a crabapple tree that is just past peak. I love Spring.

Katie Reus said...

Ooh, so pretty!! The flowers and the peach tree in my front yard are finally blooming too :)

Carol Kilgore said...

Those California poppies are one of my favorites. Thanks for the burst of spring :)

Lovely, lovely, lovely. I could do with some flowers right now. It's cloudy here in western Nebraska - and spitting the occasional snowflake.

Terry Odell said...

Katie - you'll have to share pictures.

Carol - Yeah, Mom lives in California and gets those gorgeous spring flowers.

KM - it's in the 30's here in Colorado, and they say it's going to snow again. But the movers got everything into the house, so we're snug while we deal with unpacking.

Terry Odell said...

Ilona - I'm glad you enjoyed them. I will admit I can usually count on my family for great photos.
