Okay, now that I have vented … errr, I mean shared … my frustrations with the ongoing nuisances that the hubby and I have had to literally and physically face (remember that it is happening just opposite our balcony) since the summer of 2014 from the major construction work that is under way, I can now share more of the happy stuff lah! 🙂
And happy stuff in spring naturally almost always revolves around the varied and highly colourful flora that has finally emerged after its long beauty sleep in the cold ground. As I had been away for the whole of winter hibernating in a warmer climate and as I only came back at the time when spring is almost in full swing, I missed some of the early spring beauties that prefer making their grand entrance as soon as the ground starts to warm up a little.
Oh well, I ONLY have to wait ONE year to be able to catch them waking up from their winter slumber again … so it is okay lah. Time will pass quickly enough I am sure. Must think positive heh? hehehe … 😀
Fortunately for me, I did not miss catching the tulips at the Tulip Festival before it ended. A visit by my Indonesian penpal friend (whom I befriended in my teens and who now lives in Shanghai) provided a perfect opportunity for me to pay a visit to the festival in Morges while I played host to her. So on our way to visit the parents, we made a brief stop in Morges to check out the tulips growing along the scenic shoreline of lake Léman.
Given that this was the fifth year that I visited the annual floral exhibition in Morges, I did not take as many photos of the tulips as I had done on previous visits … which means that I am only going to share a few photos here lah!
You are welcome to peruse the many photos that I shared in my earlier posts on the festival, if you feel that you have not had your fill of looking at these spring beauties. 😉

And my long-time penfriend CJ standing in between the flower beds. It was fortunate that the day was nice and sunny, although a bit chilly, when I took her to the floral exhibition. It was raining everyday just before that day. I hope the trip to the Tulip Festival is a nice souvenir of her stay with us.
