Photographic Friday

My one and only visit this year to the tulip farm. Been too busy with getting ready to go on my trip and working. Sigh. I couldn't decide which photo to use for my header. This one or the one with the pink tractor. So I decided to share this one with you as well....since I'm a lover of purple tulips and tulips in general.  I was supposed to be sitting on the tractor seat (in header photo). I was climbing up and for some reason a leg gave way or just the way the "steps" are to get onto the tractor and my legs didn't work out. I ended up falling onto the tractor. Pain involved, with some tears. That tractor isn't soft at all! My girlfriend told me it was a sassy tractor, since it's pink so it got me!  I incurred some bruises and soreness but able to walk after pain went away. I am smiling in spite of the pain! The John Deere tractor is painted pink in honor of Ken's wife, Vicky, who died of breast cancer a few years ago, during the tulip festival. Tractor was quite the conversation piece. You'll see it in a few more photos of it in another post of mine.   Til next time, God bless and enjoy your spring weather, wherever you are. A blogger friend posted that it was snowing in Kansas!  We're experiencing warm weather here, almost 70 today. It will be hotter where I'm a few days!  Ok, bye for now!

So sorry about your fall. But if you hadn't told me, I wouldn't have known. You look great sitting on that pretty pink tractor. By the way, I love purple tulips too.

Have a good trip. I can't wait to hear all about it when you get back.

Yikes, sorry about your tulip farm accident-I imagine that would hurt! I, as you already know, love your new header photo, but this one is beautiful also.
Wishing you Godspeed on your upcoming mission trip!
PS: I didn't know that about the pink tractor! Now it will hold an even more special memory for me.
