Spring Getaway

H and I just returned from the most wonderful getaway....did you miss me?

We spent five days walking thru the most lavish floral displays I have ever seen...

every color...every kind.....the smell was unbelievable...

Lady bugs made from flowers....

swans covered in flowers...

gorgeous hydrangeas....


Warhol "shoe"  picture.....

now copied in flowers!
tulips were everywhere...

my favorite?  the pink of course!  
gorgeous floral displays in the lobbies...even blown glass flowers on the ceiling!

Huge hanging balls made from fresh flowers...

where have I been?  Viva Las Vegas!!!   We met Mark and Kelly there last Saturday and had soooo much fun!   Kelly is my favorite cousin and she loves Elvis...isn't she cute sandwiched between two Elvis's?
