Every year, the month of April is set aside for the tulip festival around the valley. The colors are brilliant. I'll admit though, that living right in all this beauty, I take it for granted (as I'm sure many do.) I was thankful my aunt came for a visit so I had a good reason to go out to see the seas of stunning color. I am thankful we have a creative God! How pleasing to the senses all the shades and colors are. Here are some of my favorite shots.
