tip toe through the tulips

Oh how I wish this image was taken outdoors. was not...
Unfortunately it's still cold as hell here and not a crocus, tulip or daffodil in sight, but hey, at least the sun is shining.
It can't be too much longer before things start to turn green.
Instead it was taken at The Canada Blooms Show last week.
It was so nice to be surrounded by so many different flowers and glorious green oxygen.
It was literally a breath of fresh air.
They had an indoor playground with a sandbox, slide, trees, hula hoops, music makers, planting station and Lulu's personal favourite, a "crafting" area.
Her term du jour for anything involving glue, felt, paint, chalk, and "scissoring."
Lulu loved the kid's area and is eagerly watching the seed that she planted blossom into a flower.
Or was it a bean?
She made a sweet terra cotta pot for her bean/flower that she is mighty proud of.
Anyhow really glad that we went and I am feeling %99 better, thanks to some great advice from a fellow blogger.
gotta love natural medicine.
Who knew that a concoction of Elder flower, Nettle, Golden Rod, Bayberry, Golden-seal, Wild Indigo, Acidiphilus, Wild deep sea fish oil and acupuncture could make a gal feel like her old self again?...
I only wish I had gone to this naturopath two months ago.
ah well..a good lesson learned.
sometimes the best medicine is growing in the ground right in front of you.

Sounds beautiful!! I can't wait for spring myself. This morning was freezing!!
Things are better on my end so far, healthwise at least ;). Now we're getting ready for putting the house up for sale!!

Glad to hear that you're finally feeling better!

Wow, I wish I had thought og to to that. I am aching for some flora! Meanwhile, I am contenting myself with the odd day where I can at least feel the sun on my face while I wait for real spring. I'm ready, spring!

ooh, i wanted to go. great pictures.
you know, this winter has been so depressing that i went and did something that i have never done - bought a houseplant. and a month later, it's still alive. that is a record for me.
