Friday I drove up to Whidbey Island to visit my friend Kathy. She moved up a few years ago but for the longest time every time we made plans one of us would have to cancel. It was a joke that we saw each other more in Houston even though we were both living in Washington. My theory is that we live just far enough apart which made it difficult. In a twist of fate, we had originally thought to get together last weekend to see the tulips but that wasn't going to work so we moved it to this weekend. It ended up being perfect since last weekend we had snow and this weekend was beautiful, well Saturday was anyway. The first field we went to had a very interesting orange tulip - I was very intrigued by this color. I'm not always a fan of orange, but this was a really vibrant, beautiful color of orange. Kyle (Kathy's son) was much more interested in playing with and eating the dirt than the tulips. It was a really fun day! The only bad part about the weather being so beautiful was that everyone had a similar idea. But we still had a great time!
