  1. Wow! What a fabulous palette of colors and textures! Several of ours are blooming at last but the wind hasn’t let up enough to get any details for days. Maybe it’s time to plan on longer exposures and just go with the wind and see what develops!

    • Yes, I find there is a sweet spot on a windy day where the wind drops – very very briefly – before the next gust. If one waits just long enough, they will find that sweet spot. It’s very Zen. Thank you, Gary.

    • Yes, it was curling just as seen! I had to crop the image a bit as the flower was just starting to fade in one area due to the rain. This image is resized to fit this theme but I have another version before I resized if you would like a copy of that – gratis πŸ™‚

Not sure I’ve seen anything so colourful for sometime. It is wonderful to look at. A

    • Thank you, Adrian! Wow – fruit crumble with custard! I rarely have puddings but I could definitely eat one of those! Yes, tulips provide an early shock of colour amidst the softer yellows and lilacs of early Spring πŸ™‚
