Flowers –Feb 12, 2010

The only flowers I can flaunt today, at Tootsie’s , are bought blooms.  The winter is dragging on, so these bright reminders of summer, albeit summer in tropical climates, are so welcome. My dear husband gave these to me for Valentine’s Day.

I love orchids (which seems to run in our family), and recall how in Bangkok, Thailand, we could purchase big bundles of orchids for a few dollars.015 017

Yellow tulips are so spring-like, and if they are double, so much the better!006 007 013

Now head on over to Tootsie’s and see what everyone else is flaunting today.

What do you do when you want to scale an icy mountain, and you live on the Prairies?   Why, you do this….004

The sign says “alpine”…hmmm….

As they say, where there is a will, there is a way….

Winnipeg’s mountain….
