The day we left was Mother's day and Pike's Market had all these beautiful flowers for sale... GET this TEN bucks for a large bunch of Tulips. OH my Tulips are my FAVORITE well, one of my favorite flowers. Lilacs and Peonies oh and clematis are my most favs but for cut flowers TULIPS are my fav. Rick wanted to buy me a couple of bunches but was afraid the cruise ship would not let us take them on. CRAP guess what? most women had flowers when they were boarding. Shoot....oh well. When we go to Seattle next year for another Alaskan Cruise WE WILL HAVE TULIPS in our suite.
