I bought tulips yesterday on an impulse. I went to the grocery store to get ingredients for soup today, and these caught my eye. I'm so glad I did. They certainly make this day more hopeful. They are sitting in the middle of my table, where I tend to spend a lot of time on days like this, watching the birdies (and squirrels) at the feeder, and watching the snow fall. I am grateful that I have the choice to sit there, instead of being out driving in it.
I like the contrasts in this photo. Winter/Spring. White & Black/Pink & Green. Rough/Smooth. Calm & Quiet/Bright & Exuberant. Blah Snow & Cold/Cheerful & Hopeful!
I actually captured the snow falling in this one! Love the lines and contrasts. Today I'm spending in my studio, playing with claybord and getting ready for our art retreat Sunday. Oh, and making chicken tortilla soup. mmmm.
