What a delight it has been to just watch the tulips over the past cool week, from a frosty night (top left) to a warmer morning (top right). Watching them in full sun, gorgeous bright overcast skies, evening light, and glowing as the light fades.
This is the first time in a number of years the deer have not devoured them as they formed buds. This year I see the buds open every morning and close every night and in mid-day just be wide open. Oh my!
Am I still learning to see these gorgeous things? YES!
This is just one group of a half dozen tulips, and there are hundreds of other blooms, mostly daffodils, in bloom at the same time!
What a delight it is to hang out in the flower garden and watch these tulips!
