Found these lovely blossoms while walking in Lewes, Delaware during the Tulip Festival. Lewes is a very quaint, very old town located north of Rehoboth Beach along the Delaware Bay. There are lots of great restaurants and shops. The town was settled by Dutch immigrants. Many people from New Jersey travel here via the Cape May-Lewes Ferry to take advantage of tax free shopping.

My husband and I attended the Tulip Festival in Lewes, Delaware yesterday. The weather was gorgeous. Lewes was settled by Dutch immigrants. The town honors their heritage with a Tulip Festival. Even though we've had an early spring, plenty of tulips were around to be enjoyed. It makes me want to plant oodles of tulips in my yard this fall.

It's time again for one of my favorite events in Lewes, the Annual Teller Wine Expo & Benefit at the Lewes Yacht Club. Taste over 100 excellent wines AND help raise money to support the Historic Lewes Farmer's Market? That's an unbeatable combination. Tickets are sold out for this year, but this is an event you want to put on your calendar for the future.
