This spring, Texas got its first Tulip farm! It just happens to be in Pilot Point - about 15 minutes from our home. One Saturday afternoon we took a spur of the moment trip out to see and pick some tulips. What a different and neat thing to be able to do!
It was one big muddy mess out on the fields! Thankfully they provided these blue shoe covers to lessen the muddy shoes.
So many pretty colors!

Those blue shoe covers didn't protect from when one certain little boy trips (multiple times) and falls in the mud while walking around. He may have had to ride home with just his undies on to protect our car from turning into a mud pit. :-)
I loved every minute of our time at the tulip farm - beautiful colors, mud, and all - and look forward to going back every year!
This spring was also our first time to plant bulbs and grow tulips. While Barrett was in Belgium last year he picked up some bulbs for us. To our amazement they actually bloomed!
Tulips are my favorite flower, so it was quite the treat to have them growing in our front flower beds!
They didn't last long though thanks to our sweet little Amelia. Does this look like the face of a guilty little girl? Notice all the pretty tulip petals ON THE GROUND! She couldn't resist picking such beauty.
Our tulips :-(
They were fun while they lasted....
We will have to try again next year. :-)
