If we didn’t know it was spring by all those cherry blossoms blooming on the Old Mission Peninsula, we certainly know it by that row of lovely tulips on Bern and Cheryl Kroupa’s farm along Center Road.

If you’re headed north, there’s a long row of the brightly-colored blooms on the right, just before you get to Old Mission Tavern and Eiman Road.

I so look forward to seeing these tulips bloom every year, and especially this year, when it seems like winter has lasted one thousand years. Last year, I posted a photo of the tulips on May 31.

In the fall, you’ll find a variety of the Kroupas’ apples for sale along the stone wall across from the Old Mission Tavern. We look forward to those, too.

Thank you, Bern and Cheryl, for these cheery blooms along the roadside, brightening our day every time we drive by them.
