A Bloomin` Time We Had!


We are having a very wet and overcast May this year.
In fact, it has been such for ten straight days.

So, when the sun actually made an appearance on Sunday,
out we were taking as many 'blossom' photos as we could.


Daffodil.


Butterfly Magnolia.


Other yellow tulips.


A French hybrid tulip.


Daffodil peaking through the Lace Japanese Maple.


Tulip reaching for that elusive sun.


Reaching up.....


A very pretty tulip from a side view....


And from the top.....


'Open-house' for this tulip......just before the petals dropped.


Amazing.

  14. I wish we'd had a wetter May. The 3 days that it rained are the only 3 days that I worked. A boys got to pay for his expensive travels.
