See The Tulips 04/21/13
By Cheryl Schmit
It was a rainy start but the skies cleared as we headed north. The trees are leafing out and the bright new green leaves mixed with the dark evergreen trees was very nice to see. Spring is here.
We were a little late getting up to Skagit Valley to see the tulips, but we found a few fields still in full bloom. What a pretty sight, the colors are so vivid.

Living our here in the desert, in Palm Springs, has some things that are extremely interesting to a few of us and maybe to you also.

People were moving from the mid-west to all parts of the new country available including Southern California.
