It's Tulip Time

Nothing says spring is here, like flowers.   Hyacinths, crocus, and tulips are already in bloom and they want (and need) to be noticed.

This weekend in San Francisco, along Pier 39, is TULIP MANIA! 

When its tulip mania, it means "it is time to go outside and kick-start living again."

This is the chance to go outside, breathe in the fresh air, and blow out those gray winter doldrums.  There is nothing like passing from Winter to Spring by paying attention to the new life bursting forth all over the place.   All those vibrant spring-time flowers seem to be shouting "Notice me! Notice me!"  and you can't help but smile at their insistence and demands.

on this Presidents Day holiday weekend, it is time to do something outside with Mother Nature and notice new life being kick-started once again.  That cycle of new beginnings and wonder begins now.
