Got Color?



I don't know about you, but for me the charm of winter has worn off.  It always happens around this time of year -- the snow, the ice, the gray days.  I just need some color.  My husband brought me a big armload of tulips last week for my birthday.  

So here's a little orange and purple happiness for you today.  :)

Love your chosen background colors. And yes - winter is beginning to get 'old'.!!!

I love the way the light shines through the petals of the tulip, and the way the background appears almost jewel-like!
Thanks for sharing, and Happy Birthday!!

I'm feeling the same way. I'm tired of the cold and the wet.

Happy Birthday, BTW!

I need to ask, "what charm?"

But what a delicious way of describing the winter blues. Great tulips, love the colors.

Beautiful color ~ the background colors set the tulips off just perfectly. Winter certainly makes us all appreciate color a little more.
