One Last Look at Our 2007 Tulips

(Click on the pictures and you'll see the larger originals.)
April was definitely the height of the tulip season this year - much later than usual. Probably due to the drought since we only got four inches of rain and a couple of heat waves and freezes in January and February. Strange weather everywhere; let's hope it doesn't happen again next year. Here are a few more of our tulips, but for a better look at all of the tulips, take a look at our Kodak Gallery albums and some of my You Tube videos.

Snowy Plovers on South Ormond Beach

Tom and I hiked around the beach and got to see lots of birds on Saturday. We hoped to see snowy plovers again and got our wish - we even got to see a baby! (Click on the pictures below to enlarge them and you'll see it.)(Lucky for us the birds don't stay within the fences!) Click on the title of this post to see more pictures of what we saw. Besides the snowy plovers, we got to see other birds and even saw dolphins swimming by - we really do live in a fabulous area!
