My friend Noell plants hundreds of tulips each year, and she and Jim invite friends each spring for a viewing. Yesterday a cool, cloudy morning changed into a warm sunny afternoon, and Noell and Jim welcomed us into one of the most beautiful gardens in Charlotte.
The colors of the tulips were enchanting:

I am grateful to Noell and Jim for sharing their garden with us. Spring is surely here.
