Every spring Garvan Woodland Gardens in Hot Springs, Arkansas has a tulip extravaganza. 150,000 tulips line the walkways of Arkansas' premier botanical garden. Every year that we can we visit the gardens during the tulip extravaganza. Last Sunday was a perfect day for a visit. The weather was perfect as we walked the tulip lined trails.
There were lots of beautiful flowers besides just tulips. Garvan Woodland Gardens is beautiful any time of the year, but early spring is really special.

I was born in 1956 in Madison, Tennessee, while my parents were attending Madison College. I grew up along the Front Range in Colorado, attending schools in Longmont, Brighton, Boulder and Loveland, Colorado. Two years after graduating from Campion Academy, I married my sweetheart, Regina. We lived in Loveland, Colorado for six years before moving to Mena in western Arkansas.
I love the people of Mena and the friendly easy going way of life here. I have owned and operated my own business since moving to Mena. I enjoy the natural beauty of western Arkansas and being out of doors.
My newspaper column in The Mena Star, An Arkie’s Faith, premiered on January 7, 2016. In March 2017, I published my first book, titled The Little Things - Devotionals from a small town, using articles from the column. I published the second book in the Devotionals from a small town series, titled In the Fog, in December 2017.
