About Me

My photo
Forest, Virginia, United States
A long time ago, my sophomore English teacher, Father William Campbell, saw something in my writing and predicted that I would someday become a newspaper columnist. He suggested the perfect title for my column--"Leaves of the Palm." Now that I have a little extra time on my hands I've decided to put Father Campbell's prediction to the test. I'm going to start using this blog site not just to reprint opinion pieces I've published elsewhere but to try to get more of my ideas and opinions out there. Feedback is welcome.

Tiptoeing through the Tulips Again This Year

The tulips were in full bloom last Sunday in the Skagit Valley.  I took these photos at RoozenGarde, the public garden of one of the largest growers in the valley.  The man in the khaki shirt is one of the Roozen brothers.  The four young people are indicative of the 60-degrees-shirts-and-shoes-off mentality of the Pacific Northwest.  Click on the photos for a better view.  --EFP
