Tiptoeing




















The other day, I happened upon these tulips in front of an office building. So I tiptoed through them, which is not so easy to do when you're wearing Crocs. Just maybe winter is over.

I won't be wearing cors, it rain the whole day yesterday and today. Then we had a tornado and I was driving

Beautiful shots Ginny. I was weeding in the tulip beds the other day (no Crocs) and realized I was tiptoeing to avoid stepping on the flowers, it took forever to get that song out of my head.

G'Day Ginny, You made me smile. How absolutely wonderful to be tiptoeing through tulips! Aren't Crocs just the greatest!? I wear mine everywhere. Your photos are gorgeous, the flowers have such a vibrant colour. Wishing you a happy week. God bless. With love and care from Kerrie. xOX

Once again we're on the same track - I had a tulips post yesterday as well :)

When I think of tulips I always think of Amsterdam, Holland! There is no more beautiful patch of tulips anywhere in the world than what you will see from the window as you land there. I'm not sure what Croc's are ... but if they hinder the tip-toeing, just kick them off. ☺

You should have let Phil hold your Crocs while you tip-toed through the tulips with wild abandon. However, the photos are wonderful even with your limitations!!

Best,
Bonnie

I love tulips and I always think of Tiny Tim and Tiptoe through the Tulips! Our neighbor's little grandson "picked" all of his pretty tulips!

Gorgeous colors! Love those close shots! And of course...the verse!

Great pics....I don't know what is going on but Beth is singing some song called Tip Toe through the tulips....she is funny....

Stephanie V said...

I love the middles of tulips. Thanks for all the lovely close-ups. I think you're right - winter is over now.

Sandra said...

the header shot looks just like it is a fire, did you notice that? i had no idea it was a tulip, thought you had a fire outside and snapped it. la la la la.. hugs

Pretty flowers and verse (I need another pair of croc's) My sister-in-law gave me a pair which didn't fit) and though they weren't brand new, they are the most comfortable I've ever worn. I did post late last night (sheepish smile) Now who could forget tip Toe Through the Tulips!!

Hi Ginny, Those are beautiful red Tulips. I presently have pink and white Tulips blooming and had some orange and yellow and red ones out earlier. Spring is in full bloom! It is a rainy grey day so I especially enjoyed seeing that splash of red on your blog here. Have a great day!

Ginny: It's about a 40 mile roundtrip.

Best,
Bonnie

Tracy said...

Hah, for your sake, I hope so....except tomorrow here it is going from 86 to 60 degrees; really? UGH!! That is a hsock to our system for certain.
The tulips are really beautiful Ginny!

hip-chick said...

These are pretty. Ours are not even up yet...but soon they will be in bloom.

Ann said...

Pretty flowers and I don't even mind having that song stuck in my head, but, the vision of Tiny Tim who, in my opinion was not a particularly attractive man, has got to go :)

LV said...

Tulips are such pretty flowers. They just do not last long enough. These red ones are stunning. Thanks for your visit and comment on Blue Monday. That was a public bathroom. No matter, I am not a TV person anywhere. I hear enough bad things without watching more on TV.

S. Etole said...

Such vibrant color. The squirrels or moles have eaten all the tulip bulbs here.

Glenda said...

Beautiful tulips! I've never grown any of my own, but I'd love a whole garden of them!

Thanks so much for your prayers! It's great to have electricity after having none for almost five days. But we know that what we suffered is nothing compared with the destruction and loss of life in other places.

Joanne said...

The minute detail in your close ups are amazing! Yes, I think spring is finally pushing through. Blessings, Joanne

Deborah said...

I hope your weather is better where you live! The tulips are beautiful... I went back to see the swan today with my camera and guess what, the nest was empty! I'm going back tomorrow to see again. My son thinks I have totally lost it!
lol
xxoo

Ginny I so love tulips. I come from Albany, NY which was settled by the Dutch and every year we had a tulip festival. Such splendid colors. I truly miss that. However I did buy some lovely white tulips earlier this year and enjoyed them. Here on the Gulf Coast of Fl we are having summer temps, high
80 and into the 90s. So Spring has left but did leave lovely memories. Blessings.
