Thanksgiving Point

"Little purple pansies touched with yellow gold...."
Please consider this blog as an extension of Grandma Sweat's blog.
We all took different pictures, so between the two  blogs you should get
a pretty good sampling of what we enjoyed so much at
Thanksgiving Points' Tulip Festival.
This is why they call it a "Tulip Festival"

How do they manage to mow in two directions?
This hill is steeper than it looks.

I can never resist a waterfall.

Look closely for the animal

Lots of  people, young and old, enjoying a perfect Spring
Day.  Look at that sky.

Urns add such a classic look

This is a picture of a person taking a picture.

One of my favorites

A nice stranger took this for us, and he
even gave me my camera back.

The building at the top is where we
started on our golf cart tour.

Is it the mowing, or is it strip fertilizing?

Wish you could enlarge this one.  I think
it's spectacular.

Chinese lanterns, a nice touch,

More tulips

I took a picture of Shirley standing at this same
spot ten years ago.  Wish I had thought about
including both.

A pretty lady and some pretty tulips.

I got carried away with this little statue

As you can see.

Told you so.

A glorious experience with daughters Barb and Denny.
Now get back to Grandma Sweat's blog.

Why on earth?

A few weeks ago we were at the bank (well, actually, our credit union) and the young woman who was helping us had a picture of an adorable little girl on her desk.  I asked her if that was her daughter.  She beamed and said,"Yes, but that was some months ago.  Here's a more recent one."  She then powered up her phone, did a few clicks, and proudly showed us the latest picture of her adorable little girl, face almost entirely covered with Spaghetti-Os.

I smiled, and said something like "Cute..." but was thinking to myself "Why on earth would she take a picture like that?"

When we got home I began looking through our albums and ran across the following.  Now I know why.

My, what big ears you have.
