Better than one lip
Tulips in my little dining nook
It's tulip season! For some reason, I'm always surprised when I see tulips at the flower shop or in the supermarket during the winter. They're my favorite flower, but I don't keep tabs on when they are in season. Whole Foods tends to have great specials on tulips at this time of the year and a nice bonus is that the flowers stocked at the store are almost always from right here in Virginia (the supplier is Fresh Tulips USA in Stevensburg, VA, near Culpepper).

EDIT: If you love tulips, you might enjoy this page from the Fresh Tulips USA website that shows the different varieties and colors they grow. Here's another page that shows photos of their facility throughout the growing process.
By the way, this is my busy time at work. Before I started blogging, I cited this time of year when design bloggers asked why I wasn't doing this yet. I was worried about my ability to post daily during this time of year. There's little time for projects and I don't want to resort to posting inspiration pictures day after day. There are plenty of bloggers who do a beautiful job of that already. I hope you'll hang in there with me if I'm not the best blogger in the next few weeks.
