Everything's Coming Up Tulips

The Boton Public Garden was the first public garden in the United States. It's one of the many fascinating historical sites in Boston. The garden is absolutely stunning in the Spring when the tulips are in full bloom. They are just now sprouting, but here is a photo I took last Spring.
Last fall, I talked my sweet husband into planting a ton of tulip bulbs in our yard. They are just beginning to sprout as well. I can't wait to see them!

Naturally, I fell in love with this stamp. Now I can have tulips year round. Of course, the first ones had to be colored purple!
Stamps: Tilda with Tulips and Basket by Magnolia; sentiment by AMuse Artstamps
Paper: SU Paper Garden, Barely Banana, and Elegant Eggplant
Accessories: Copics, Copic Spicas, Bella's Ribbon

Now if only the real tulips would start blooming. I am so ready for Spring!

I've been staring at tulips for a while too, I'm working on some Easter cards :) Love that picture of the flowers...I don't think they have a tulip festival here but you never know, hehe! Lee just gave me a dirty look when I suggested going to the Azalea Festival or the Iris Festival, and he's not sad that he'll be gone when the Lily Festival rolls around!
