Today is the final day of Tulip Time, 2012, here in Holland, Michigan or as everyone has dubbed it this year, "Stem Fest, 2012". The weather here in Michigan has been unseasonably warm all year and the tulips started blooming in March. Honestly, they lasted a lot longer than I thought they would and they were beautiful. Unfortunately, they were almost all gone by the time our festival started.

However, it is also the day before Mother's Day and I decided to paint some blank greeting cards for the moms. There are twenty tulip cards here, two of each ten designs. I hope they like them. I had to paint like a maniac since the cards didn't come in until Wednesday afternoon.

I thought if I grouped them all together like this, it would almost look like one of the tulip lanes here in town.

Happy Tulip Time and Happy Mother's Day to all mothers traditional and otherwise!

I had to take the picture quick because the breeze kept blowing the cards over and it was starting to sprinkle.

Rain + Watercolor = Not good.
