The flowers of late winter and early spring occupy places in our hearts well out of proportion to their size. ~Gertrude S. Wister
I perhaps owe having become a painter to flowers. ~Claude Monet
I hope some day to meet God, because I want to thank Him for the flowers.
Happy Sunday, friends ♥ Life is Short ~ Peace is Sweet ♥
Have a good Sunday… I do love the photos…
Thanks….you guys too!
I think my favourite tulips are those with the ragged edges.
I love those deep purple, almost black tulips!
I love those as well, Diana. These were “surprise” tulips. I thought they were the normal “reds”. 😉
They were a surprise. I thought I’d planted red tulips. 😉
thanks ♥ Have a great day!
very very vibrant. Wonderful shots too. Thank you. Just love it 🙂
Vibrant. What a wonderful description! Thank you. Hope your day is a good one 😉
Beautiful photos, great work!
I like that first shot a lot – the exposure is lovely – you see the texture of the petals’ surfaces. It’s emerging from the dark – really nice shot!
thanks…I love this tulip! a great surprise and I now have SIX of them!
Nice – I always wait to late to think about planting bulbs – I miss having tulips. I love those ragged edges.
When we first moved here I planted over 100 bulbs. Maybe 5 of those made it. Am starting over now….but I try to either plant each fall or buy starts in the spring. ;}
I had lots of bulbs planted in my house in Oregon – here I have thousands of very old daffodils on the perimeter and outlining where a log cabin once stood. I would love to put more close to the house. I planted some the first winter and they didn’t make it either.
I see many old homesteads that still have those jonquils scattered and it always makes me kinds sad.
I see them at old places in the woods – I know what you mean.
Head’s up day around here for storms….ya’ll be safe!
Oh the color!! Beautiful…an understatement!
Beautiful images and sentiments… They made me smile… 🙂
Thanks for telling me that….makes my morning so much better! 🙂
Flowers are amazing, aren’t they, and those tulips are a surprise. Vince has been planting cosmos, petunias, pansies, anything with lots of color! We take daily walks around the yard to see what’s blooming, or how things are growing every day. The song is lovely, too. Thanks for sharing! 🙂
🙂 Every year I say to my self, “Self ~ you are not going to go crazy and plant any annuals this year.” And then I do. yep….Flowers are amazing.
Paula, you would get along great with my husband. He went to the nursery and bought 4 flats of cosmos – almost all planted, 2 and a half flats of petunias, all planted, and he just finished planting his last flat of pansies when he realized they were mostly early spring plants. He’s kind of bummed about that. But the yard looks amazing! He has planted mostly perennials in the past. So, I’ll post a picture soon. 🙂 M
Cannot wait to see the pics! As long as the pansies stay shaded….they’ll hang in there. When we lived in Missouri, our yard was so shaded with trees that the pansies would last to July. We don’t have that here.
That will be tough, but we will see. Poor guy, he just planted so MANY of them! 🙂
Just enjoy them while you can!
Those tulips are lovely , have a wonderful week!
Thanks so much….you too!
Wow love the photos! Beautiful!
thank you 😉 All six are blooming now….love the surprise!
