Zip toe through the tulips

Borzoi in tulip fields

Zippy in the tulips   

We sprang out of bed sometime between 3:30 and 4 am so that we could make our way out to the tulip fields before sunrise. Zip drew the short straw and got to ride along. He wasn’t entirely impressed with either getting up that early or just hanging with a bunch of flowers.

I was pretty impressed with mass of color as the sun came over the horizon.

Hot air balloon over tulip fields

Up, up and away   

I must admit that a very large part of me was quite giddy when I found out that they had hot air balloons going up over the fields.

I’m always in awe of the color and intricate patterns of the balloons and to see them over the fields was an extra treat.
