Flowers and the moon..............




I am enjoying these beauties on my kitchen table.  I picked them up a week ago and had no idea what color they would be.  I am thrilled, they are so gorgeous, I can't stop looking at them.  What could be more perfect than a tulip?




I was unable to catch a photo of the brilliant full moon on Sunday evening, it was so beautiful.  So when I went out early this morning to take Max out before leaving for work I saw this gorgeous globe shining behind the rapidly moving clouds.  I rushed in for my camera, switched the lens and was able to get a few shots.  Not the easiest thing with moving clouds and dark skies, the photos aren't perfect but they will let me remember this quiet and beautiful moment.  I love the moon, and am always drawn to its beauty when it is full or even the smallest crescent.  

I am having a busy week at work, although trying to still visit with all of you.  Hope something makes you smile today.

Those are beautiful tulips Meredith. I almost bought some at Trader Joe's last week but I passed them by because we had so many flowers left from Dennis' time in the hospital. But tulips say spring to me, and I'm so ready for spring this year. Your moon pictures are very pretty too. I don't know how they could be better. We have had the most beautiful sunshine on the mountains today. I had to drive out of town to take a friend for a surgery today and as I drove back into Spokane and down what we called the sunset hill, I could see the panorama of mountains all in a ring around Spokane. All were covered with snow and they had the blue, blue blue sky behind them. It was gorgeous. Scenes like that always remind me why I love the Northwest so much. Have a lovely evening my sweet friend.
Blessings, Betsy

Those tulips are gorgeous. Whoever would have thought red and purple would look so good together?????? Looks like you'll have them for awhile. After a week they still look brand new!

Chris said...

Wow what a beautiful moon! What time of the morning was that? Your tulips are so pretty, they are just shouting Springtime !!! Good luck this week!

Lynne said...

You always have great moon pics. I just love a full moon shining through my top window at night. It lights up the whole yard :)

Your tulips are so pretty, Mere! I know how a little bouquet lifts me up. I've been picking up tulips and lilies at my grocery store on Fridays when they are on sale and what a bright spot they are!

Your pictures of the moon are spectacular. Not sure what sort of lens you have but you are good!!

Hope you're having a great week. We have a heck of a snowstorm coming tomorrow here in the Midwest. I'm sort of looking forward to some activity shoveling and then curling up in front of a fire with some cocoa. :)

The moon has been making me smile in the evenings. So bright and beautiful.
What else? A phone call and an email with plans for a visit from one of the offspring!

Jo said...

It seems funny that we were both looking at the same moon. I wonder if it was at the same time! Jo x

Stins said...

Fabulous pictures Meredith. The moon is just so amazing, sometimes it's hard to believe it's real. I hope you have a rewarding week in work and that you have plenty to smile about. Janet x

Suck lovely tulips. My Valentine roses are still on our table. I am a total flake about not trying to photograph the Snow Moon. Glad you got to enjoy it. I'm off to the hospital to see poor Dayle. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

Pretty Post! Your sister while she was out of town working posted about the power of a fresh bunch of flowers on her table. I had to go and get some to brighten my life. Instant positive vibes!

Beautiful pictures! I love tulips. I can never decide which are my favorite, tulips or roses. I guess I'll just have two favorites.
