Tip toe into the New Year

Thank you so much to everyone who dropped by the blog yesterday.

A couple of you mentioned the tulip fields and it brought back so many colorful memories.

There is a tulip farm about 20 miles from where we live.

Every spring they have a huge celebration and we always take a couple of greyhounds.

This is Maddie, she was 13 when we took her out, sadly, this was one of her last field trips. I always thought she was pretty in pink.

I'm sure you recognize my stud muffin Flocko. Since there wasn't a ball involved, he was not impressed.

This year, the twins had just arrived and this was their maiden field trip. They were so good.

Around the end of February I'll start stalking the Woodenshoe website to see when the tulips will be in full color.

You'll just have to check back then to see who gets to tip toe through the tulips this year.

Absolutely gorgeous! Thank you for sharing. It is so drab here in MN right now, was wonderful to see all the beautiful color and the hounds complimenting a breath of spring!

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog 'Spacial Peepol' and a big Happy New Year to your and yours!

OMG! Total, complete envy here! We have a friend up in Michigan who has beautiful tulip farms and a festival near her and we travelled up there once to see them. Those photos are just stunning. I'd kill to have a place like that near here to photograph!

I could say who I thought would get to go, but then I'd be afraid that would make you change your mind.
