Spectacular first image Sylvia and are those what they call 'black tulips'? It's been very grey in Perth today also and now I've lost my voice, some say that's a good thing haha!
btw your new header is a scream!

Nature is always beautifully shown by you, Sylvia.

P.S. I guess Angelina starts being jealous now! :-)))

Christine said...

So nice to be greeted by these beautiful photos this morning. It's been raining here most of the night. One of those spring rains that give the plants a little boost. Where are those tulips growing? They're spectacular! Happy Monday, Sylvia!

Lovely photos Sylvia...funny header today...hope we all get some more sunshine!

Arija said...

All your pictures are splendid but oh, the snow on the mountains and that massed planting of tulips just captured my heart.

It may be grey where you are but here it is blowing a gale and anything that is not mailed down is blowing about, horizontal rain, cold, power outages . . . quite a start to our winter.

Hope you are having a much better time.

Genie said...

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.
