One of the first things we noticed as we headed West was the change in temperature and landscaping. On Saturday we left behind hostas just starting to peek through the soil, lilacs just starting to bud, and magnolia trees with buds (if you are lucky). But our trip to Lockport offered a colorful and beautiful ride and welcoming. This beautiful flower lined the church, near one of the doors we entered.
It's a breed of tulip but we've yet to find out the exact name. Quite a few have offered one, if you are a flower guru - what do you think? Some of the options we've been given thus far are: fancy tulip (something I would have said, lol), Estella Rijnveld Tulip, parrot tulip, and Light orange terry tulip. Do you have a thought or is there one that you are sure is correct?
And what will I do with this information, hopefully, locate a package of these bulbs so I can have some growing in my lawn next year at this time. Well, in a couple weeks, lol.
Ed and I were able to enjoy our surroundings because we left a large window of time before I actually had to be there. One thing I like to do is be on time. To me, on time is at least thirty minutes early when I'm presenting, speaking, or sharing. I think this is largely because when people arrive, to see someone still setting up can be distracting and take away from the hosts desired feeling, mood, and tone. Another reason to be early, we like to enjoy looking around at different towns, cities, churches, and locations. I think this is from the traveling I did with my family as a child, it's interesting to see how places do the "same thing" but different. Do you know what I mean?
When you travel, are you arriving early enough to enjoy the beauty around you?
