Nearly that time of year....

Postby Bubbles » Fri, 21 Apr 2006 5:45 pm

Just a quick post.....it's nearly Bluebell time of year here in the UK, and as I love this time of year so much thought I'd post some pics.....

How about some Aussie pics, or Sing pics of what you think of as one of your typical flowers....

cue Eric and some tulips, perhaps....?.... :wink:

End of April, beginning of may is the best time of year. Go to the Keukenhof in Lisse in The Netherlands, close to Schiphol airport Amsterdam.

Tulips are glorious flowers, so artistic...so upright at first yet when the open and bend a little, so beautiful....

Sigh....going to paint some this afternoon now....I am totally nuts, I should be writing.........

From what I understand, our place in the US has has a stunning array of tulips, daffodils and hycinths in the spring. Not having ever been there at this time, I'll have to take it on faith. :)

Today when we saw the bus adverts with photos of tulips and the fake tulips 'planted' outside I told my daughter of the magnificent spring we spent on the farm when she was 4 years old and how the smell of clover in the fields was so over powering you'd have to roll your windows up for fear of suffocating on their sweetness.

Sometimes there arethings in this world, so magnificent and yet so ordinary that you wonder if God's special gift to you was not all the obvious things: like perfect children and love and pets and health -- but rather the ability to recognise the brilliance in a field of wild clover.

Bubbs, do you think its age or wisdom or both that allows us to be so bloody deep?

Big high school reunion this year in November. Was considering dealing with my 'lines' when my son said; Mom! No! You look great!

Smart boy :wink:
