Today I had the opportunity to visit the Rodale Institute to tiptoe through their beautiful organic tulip fields. And I picked bunches and bunches for myself…what a treat to see these gorgeous flowers…it’s truely a little bit of Amsterdam right here in Pennsylvania.
I had a little helper while I was collecting my flowers…I’d like to think it was Tiny Tim but I think his name is Samson.
You too can enjoy their glory and pick some for yourselves by attending the Rodale Institute’s Organic Tulip Festival on April 14th from 10am to 4pm EST. Although the official festival is a week away, some of the early varieties are ready to pick now! The tulips are priced at $1 a stem for standard tulips and $2 for fancy tulips.

Here’s what I did with my collection of flowers.
Mark – this sure makes me want to be back on the farm, during my favorite time of the year.
