a tulip surprise in my backyard

Backyard-Tulips

























I completely forgot about planting these striped yellow tulips last year. the yellow was so bright I could see its vivid color waving to me from across our yard. just like the president finding bin laden, it was a nice surprise.

Beautiful flowers, Lily. That's the nice thing about bulbs, by the time they come up we've forgotten what we planted and where.

Lovely flowers for a Monday, and a nice companion to the mellow yellow bows. Have a great week, filled with flowers and brightness!

I just spent that last 24 hours fighting with AT&T to get my phone and internet service back. What a nightmare! So this photo lifted my spirits. A lot. xo, mari
