Spring Tulips

I got to take a little road trip up to east Texas this weekend and could not believe all the gorgeous flowers I saw. The wild flowers along the highway included bluebonnets, Indian paintbrushes, winecups, primroses, and crimson clover. I saw dogwood trees covered with snowy white blooms, redbud trees, and flower beds lined with tulips. The tulips were a beautiful coral color and inspired my designs today for Kitchen Sink Stamps.  (Post sponsored by Kitchen Sink Stamps).

    Yes, the wildflowers are beautiful this year for some. Guess we just got enough rain for them.

  3. Oh so lovely! I love the pop of red from the tulips! It looks like a walk in the park on a beautiful Spring day :) I was blessed to visit the Netherlands several times as a child and you've captured the look of the tulips perfectly!
