Sunshiney

It's been really cold recently, -25C and lower at night, then it poured with rain and the temperature rose to +10C and lots of the snow melted, then wild winds and ice pellets, and now we're back in the deep freeze, -17C. Crazy weather.
The only remedy for too much annoying winter is to buy fresh flowers... especially my favourite sunshiney yellow tulips.



I love the way they open and stand upright, like soldiers on parade, then gradually droop and curl and form those lovely elegant organic curves. Welcome sunshine.

You done good! Tulips are a great floral choice and yellow is a color for newness and happiness.

A great time to bring some flowers in to the home. Lovely to look at them and their pretty colour. Brings a smile to me, spring gets closer every day. :)

Wish we had some sunshine. The light is muted this time of year without the sun!

That's one way to do it. We still have a poinsettia blooming nicely, but it doesn't match your yellow tulips.

That really is crazy weather Shammi! Love the tulips, they look fab when new and even better when they go all 'sculptural' ☺ must keep my eyes ooen, it's been a while since I've had some!

P.s. I think you definitely should paint a mural or two around town Shammi, a lot of the street artists here get commissioned and get paid!
