Behold!  ...how's that for an explosion of color?  Yes, the tulips are coming in strong.  Daffodils have peaked already, I think, but there are some still looking as fresh as ever. The Bradford pear trees all around are full of snowy white blooms...they look amazing.  The redbuds are still filling out their pinkish purple buds.

The wind was whippin' at Mockingbird Bay last night, that's for sure.  See Mockingbird Bay Resort's Facebook page for more lightning strikes and see my Facebook page for a photo of a faintly seen, lightning-backlit funnel cloud, too.
