I'm glad there aren't TOO many shadows on the tulips and grape hyacinths. They are lovely in the brilliant sunshine!

Today the flowers take center stage, their shadows just an accent. Lovely Sylvia.

Kelly said...

I LOVE the wonderful burst of color in your photos today, Sylvia!!

Cassie said...

Wow!! Terrific Miss Sylvia!!

George said...

The tulips in the half-barrel are simply gorgeous, though all of your pictures are wonderful. I like the quotes as well. I hope you're having a great weekend.

Life in the shadows - or the shadows of life? :-)

Catherine said...

Lovely shots and captions....

Joan said...

Beautiful color! I would love to have that barrel of tulips on my patio. :)

Ralph said...

The flowering plants have the nicest shades of pastel, the shadows following the shapes of the beauties above. The leafy shadows fall upon your deck - even without seeing the subject, the shadows suggest a full tree with lots of foliage already. Spring has indeed sprung here!

Halcyon said...

Gorgeous blooms!

Sérgio Pontes said...

The flowers are very nice

Gemma Wiseman said...

The purple flower bed is glorious as are the barrels of flowers! And the last photo is like flowering shadows! Beautiful!

What lovely flowers, Sylvia. Don't worry, your comments don't disappear from my blog - I have comment moderation on so I have to approve all comments before they show up. Otherwise I get a lot of spam, some days there's more spam than real comments, and they often link to rather offensive sites. Socks says hi, and wishes he could see Sam!

The colors of these flowers are out of this world. They are so vivid. The third shot without any flowers is very striking. It makes me wonder exactly what plant it belongs to. You always give us such wonderful pictures.genie

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
