green and gold





After a spell of wintry chill, the sun's warmth is back. The tulips are blooming profusely. Still under the spell of my own version of tulipomania, I'm even enthralled by green.

The late afternoon rays stream in through dirty windows, then drop behind the trees and hillside, leaving behind a glowing golden sky.

That first photo is very interesting!

Close-ups open new vistas, don't they? As these photos show.

Lovely. So peaceful and invigorating at the same time.

Stunning. The colors are so delicate.
Please don't mention dirty windows. Salt spray and grime from diesel exhaust dirty up my windows so fast.

R, thanks, I've been trying a few times to get a good photo of water in a vase.

Joe, yes, like another world!

Lilalia, glad you think so!

Hattie, isn't it the downside of sunny mornings and evenings, when we suddenly see another job to do?! Who would think rain can make one's windows so dirty?
