Memories of Spring


Summer is upon us and 100 degree plus heat has already arrived. I thought I’d take one last longing look at the wonderful spring beauty that greeted us such a short time ago. This tulip is just glowing in the Arizona sunshine.  The tulips may be gone, but my photos of them linger on.

The contrast between the leaves and flower is vivid and lovely. I always felt that the tulips should last longer because they're usually such a wonderful harbinger of summer. But, not if it's 100 degrees!!

The light in the bowl of that tulip is so beautiful.

Beautiful memory and look what it did to the weather!! It's 53 degrees out in Goodyear this morning - very spring like.

Thank God for photos to remind us of Spring. Oddly, it's been a beautiful morning for this time of year, but I'm not complaining. It won't last.

So bright! The tribute to Jake was so nice. He was such a great dog.

I love the way this is lit by the sunlight. Out Spring is finally here and there are flowers everywhere.
