Just one year to wait till your trip to Disney World and to do the DISer meet & greet. Time will go by quickly and all sudden it is time for your trip.

So I have fallen behind in just about every area of my life and have decided to catch up. Of course my first priority is the DIS Boy, have I missed a humdinger of a change!

Oh no!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Colorado is a huge distance from CT! Darn those logistics!

I do too. But the New England colours are traditionally later in October and we just won't be there in that time. Someday...I'm going to plan a trip just for New England fall.
You are right PIO- the Fall show is not in September in New England. It starts earlier in the North but from CT and Ma the colors generally are not peak until mid October. By Halloween it is gone. I am not a tree person but it does depend on the type of tree and the weather.

My niece lived in Arizona for years and while I never got the chance to visit her I saw gorgeous photos of the Southwest. It would be a shame not to experience the glory that part of our Country offers if you are in that area.

Strange as it sounds....I actually like the anticipation of waiting. The holiday goes too quick!

Nancy - I still haven't yet blown out the flicker of heading across to the East Coast. But we would need to have more than 3 weeks for this. We'll just have to wait and see.

Tiptoe thru’ the Tulips



I have to admit that I am looking forward to a bit of sunshine after a rather wet and cold Melbourne winter.

The weather is slowly warming up over here…but yesterday, it dawned beautiful and blue and sunny and temperatures in the low 70’s.






If it stays at this temperature, I’ll be happy. But I suspect that in 4 months from now, I’ll be complaining about the heat.

Still…..we made the most of the glimpse of sunshine we saw and decided that we needed to tiptoe through the tulips.



Tesselaar is located up in the Dandenong hills in Melbourne, about an hour’s drive away from us. The family is originally from Holland and they have been growing and selling tulips for over 50 years. During the springtime, they hold the annual tulip festival.


Seems like a lot of other Melbournians had the same idea as us.





I tried hard to steer clear of people in my pictures….






…and in the end, I just decided to focus on the flower power on hand.




Yellow…the colour of sunshine.



















Pink….Pretty in Pink.
























Orange….zesty, vibrant and spicy!












But I have to say, I’m more attracted to the deeper richer tones of purples, reds and the Queen of the Night.


































Hope you enjoy the spring colour!

The flowers are so pretty. I'm jealous of you right now. Although we also has 70 degrees and sunshine, we now have the autumn chill. Which means we're close to winter. And I hate winter. You have the summer to look forward to.

You need to move well south. We have a weeks worth of temps in the 30's & 40's. the rest is no that bad at all.

I'd love to, and my DD25 is already in Louisiana. However, I have at least another 10 years until I can even think about retiring and moving. And DD 24 and DGD3 will be still up here.
