Hello dear Reader. Today I felt like I was walking in a rainbow. Gail and I visited 'Wicked Tulips' in Johnston, RI. We weren't sure what to expect. Well it did not disappoint and we had such a great visit. I had the pleasure of chatting with Jeroen and learning a bit about tulip farming. For instance all the bulbs will have to be dug up this summer, by hand. They replant with new bulbs every season!
Gail and I got to the field a half hour before they opened. We had purchased tickets ahead of time. This is my first selfie with my new i-Phone that I LOVE!
We are finished picking our tulips. They are $1 a stem and we each pick 15. It's fun to see everyone's bouquets.
They provide a wrapping station and this worker showed us the ropes.
We left just as it was getting crowded. We had brunch at Cindy's diner. A very cute Elvis themed diner. Guess what, no we didn't see the King slinging hash, someone, who wanted to remain anonymous paid for our check! Can you believe it? Gail had chatted with two diners while I washed up and we think it was them. Such a nice thing to do! After brunch, we hit a FABULOUS antique consignment shop, the Find on 6. I was in heaven. I had trouble leaving this corner:
I LOVE this table, above.
These pillowcases almost came home with me.
Shari, are those your dishes at the top? The teapot was $56!
There was a whole hothouse filled with different vendor booths. The natural lighting made everything look just beautiful.
I love the paper doilies! What a great idea!
HEAVEN! I only took home photos, btw!
The brat, he lost no time chewing on the tulips!
