here comes the sun...

smelling the flowers instead of touching

My feet find themselves planted on the still dewey grass. I can feel a drop of water on the chair soaking through the leg of my jeans. There is a slight breeze flowing through the air but the sun is shooing it away. I love mornings like this. I don't have to work today and it is going to be beautiful. That's how it has been for the past several days. It is so good to be alive.

Thank you for sticking around Spring. Make yourself comfortable.


When I looked out the window Sunday morning I greeted by these beauties above. The first buds on my tulips had bloomed. You have no idea how happy this made me. Right away I knew I had to photograph them. Two dancers. A mother & child. Welcoming the day.

This morning, two pink blooms said, "salutations".

Lovely pics.
I tried planting tulips once- the heat got to them all before they bloomed.

So, I just enjoy everyone elses, or gaze at them in the stores.

I have been noticing the flowers popping up in my yard too.

Too bad my allergies have made me want to stay inside.

Soo hard to only look and not touch!

My tulips have bloomed too! Spring can stay as long as it'd like. You take the best pictures. Do you have one of those cameras with the interchangeable and zoomy-type lenses? I should take a photography class. I think I'd like it.

Waxing poetic are we? I like it! Keep it up! Just one more muscle for you to flex.
