Tulip Festival

I love Spring!

A week or so ago, we went to the Tulip Festival at Thanksgiving Point. This was my first time attending even though I've wanted to go for years. According to their website, there are 250,000 tulips displayed in 55-acres of gardens. That's a lot of tulips. Since tulips are my favorite flower, I was in heaven.

One garden area had all sorts of lawn games and activities. 
We found a large chess board. Of course, S and C had to have a game.

One of my goals this year is to make a unique quilt. I'm taking part in my guild's challenge this year to make a quilt titled "I looked out the window." It can be anything we see out our window--kitchen window, living room window, work window, car window, etc. I have been toying around with the idea of making a flower garden--3D flower garden.

There are so many possibilities, I can't decide! And so, I don't start.

But having spent a day among the flowers, I really am motivated to choose and move forward with this project.
