It’s Tulip Time!

While it may not quite be tulip time here where I live, it definitely was in Devon, England recently. Our thanks to Angie for the use of her cheerful and colorful tulip photos! I didn’t grow up a fan of tulips but in my later years have come to appreciate their beauty, their early arrival and their different shapes and colors!

Love the little bit of contrasting color on this lone beauty and the contrasting colors of the surrounding flowers

These particular ones are my favorites for shape and color

Our final beauty is so cheerful and colorful as the colors are mixed.

Impressions of a Garden

I always wanted to draw and paint. However the gift was not for me to have. Through the use of free photo editing programs, once in awhile I can ‘create’….perhaps still not what I envision but sometimes something besides the actual photograph. The original photos came to me from my friend Angie in Devon, England who graciously allows me to take her photos and create something out of them. Anyway, hope you like the colors etc 🙂

I am not a huge art fan but love VanGogh and Monet. When I received these photos I thought of Monet!

I don’t know what these are but they are huge! I would not mind seeing this in person

The Sheep Farm

These photos say, ‘England’ to me. The gorgeous countryside and the sheep are so beautiful and relaxing to look at. Our thanks to our friend, Angie in Devon England for taking these for us! These were taken near Teignmouth at a farm.

The Loch Ness Swan?

Thanks to my friend Angie in Devon, England for sharing her photos with me! I can’t believe she found the Loch Ness Swan in England of all places! She must have migrated south for the winter as Scotland can be a might cold!

Angie’s trip started out quite normal. Here is a lovely single black swan.

Walking along, Angie saw these two black swans practicing synchronized dunking

All of a sudden, she stopped dead in her tracks. There before her very eyes was the Loch Ness Swan! She snapped this incredible photo quickly before Nessie Swan disappeared. Is this incredible or what?

English White Roses

These white roses are from Devon, England and are courtesy of our friend Angie! I admit that white roses were never on my list of favorites mainly because I don’t recall ever seeing any. These photos have however given me a love for them. Enjoy!

Even within white roses there is a hint of color in some places. LOVE the raindrops!

Pink Roses from Devon, England

These lovely pink roses are truly English roses…..so gorgeous I can almost smell them 🙂  These photos were snapped by a friend of mine in Devon, England! She is a true flower lover and is always taking photos of them. My thanks to Angie for these beauties and for the posts here of her flowers that are yet to come!
