White Tulips are blooming and it snowed

I woke up to snow outside and tulips blooming inside this morning.  My friend Susan sent me a beautiful planter for my Birthday, with surprise bulbs already planted.  I couldn't wait to see what bouquet awaited me.

The white tulips bloomed today, but I see yellow and red ones peeking below, yet to bloom.

Christmas was wonderful and I hope yours was too.  We might go to Vermont for New Year's day if the weather cooperates.   I love Vermont this time of year, and we'll be visiting my Mom who lives in South Burlington, Vermont.

Have a beautiful day, and Thank you Susan.  You made the let down after Christmas be a Spring bouquet, instead.

These are so pretty Karen! I am always surprised at how much Ilove white in the winter. You would think we would crave color, and sometimes I do! But, the white seems to capture and amplify the light and seems so fresh and clean and pure. I love the whiteness of these tulips!

A trip to Vermont sounds like a lovely thing - at any time of year, but especially in the snow. I know the Burlington area a wee bit - it was a favourite detour on our way from Ontario to Cape Breton in the summer time.

I never thought to start tulips beautiful! The snow, too. Hope you get to Vermont. After watching White Christmas so many times I've always wanted to stay in an inn there!! :)
