Blooms


Lets start our week off with a little bit of color. I really like Tulips and they are in bloom all over town. The only sad part is that they don't last very long. But hey a little bit of happiness is better than none at all.

Hi Randy!

I will register the first "kind words" hehehehe. Well, the photo is great and the colors are full of "happiness", so thanks for sharing that photo.

Have a great day,

Antonio

A bit of happiness in a long day is as a bit of salt in potato soup... it makes ALL the difference! Thank you for this, Randy. I hope something magical happens to you on this Monday morning. :)

One reason we like them so much is they are around for such a short time. :)

Happiness itself won't last long, but these colorful flowers are perfect for a Monday at work...

A sure sign of spring!

Believe me, I'd take those tulips over a snow storm any day. Not liking this weather up here so much.

I love tulips and as you know, we here in Phoenix don't see very many of them.

Jacob and Lois Anne said...

But you've got to admit they do start spring off with a bang! Gorgeous!

Re horseback riding: I would think you'd have lots of opportunities to do that there in Santa Fe, right?

Birdman said...

Our tulips are coming... but very slowly. 10days or so????

You are waxing philosophical this Monday morning, Randy. Thanks for sharing the tulips. They are one of my favorites!

Jarart said...

Tulips are such a welcome sight after all the grays of winter. Most of mine got their heads blown off in 40 mph winds.

I think my wife is planning tulips to add to our daffodils for a mix of color for next year.

JM said...

Tulips are gorgeous!

Christina Klas said...

Oh how I wish I had a green thumb this time of year!

Kate said...

What delightful spots of colour these wonderful harbingers of spring bring to the landscape!!

RedPat said...

They aren't out here yet but it has been so cool that I think they will last for a long time when they do open. Nice shot of colour for a Monday!

Marie-Noyale said...

A nice way to start the week..
Anything with bright colors after the greyish winter is wonderful!

Olga said...

Randy, we have snow all over town :)
Beautiful photo! The color of the wall and flowers together look stunning.

Magpie said...

Tulips always remind me of my favorite uncle. He had such a green thumb and loved planting tulips.

Jack said...

Agreed, Randy. But I think the better way is to enjoy the time when the tulips are here instead of bemoaning that their time is fleeting.
