Something (I'm not sure what) inspired me to take some photographs of the greenery outside. Maybe it is because I love tulips, green grass, and trees. Maybe it is because I wanted photography practice, or maybe, just because I love spring! Call it whatever you want, but I had a blast taking pictures of nature! Anyway, here are my pictures (and commentary) of the growth around me:
This was the first tulip to bloom this spring...I was so excited!
I thought this one was going to be white until I got a closer look!
I was surprised at how the colors blended together perfectly.
This is probably my favorite tree on our property.
I was going to lie on the ground to get this shot, but since I didn't want my hair and clothes covered in dirt, grass, and leaves, I decided to stand insead.
I can't believe how green (some) of the grass has gotten already!
I love golden-yellow tulips! They remind me a little of daffodils, the "springiest" flower I think there is!
Last fall we planted a lot of tulips lining our walkway to the porch.
This picture was hard to take because my camara wouldn't focus!
But once I did take the picture, I think it turned out great!
Just think when this tree will bloom with flowers!
This tulip hasn't fully opened yet, but I took this picture because I liked the leaves... I haven't seen any like it before!
Here is the final picture of a plant we planted a while ago. It's a pretty burgundy, especially in summer!
That's the summary I have of growing things this spring for now, but I'm sure there is a lot I didn't cover! I like that the weather is warming up, but summer seems nearly on us! Spring goes by fast...don't miss the beauty of it!
