Worth waiting for…

I think I can say it out loud.  Spring is finally here in central Massachusetts.  I knew it when I saw that my tulips had pushed their heads up through the ground.  You just can’t trust the daffodils to tell the truth about spring.  But I trust tulips.



Thank you, Nancy, I used texture nc_0416-1 when I processed this pic.
  Having your textures on hand is wonderful!

Beautifully done Barbara. Our daffs are blooming and the tulips are budded. It's been very warm and sunny here since Friday. I'm loving it!

Lydia Martin said...

That really is lovely! I planted a bunch last fall but they are late bloomers but pushing up now...I really like the treatment to the photo

It's funny, but here in the South, tulips cannot be relied upon as a sign of Spring. Too many times they have been "decapitated" by frost! Lovely image!

Love this, and the quote is beautiful!

My tulips said 'no way, no how' this year and didn't make an appearance. I've been told that they sometimes slip every other year - but maybe that person was just trying to make me feel better.

We're hitting 80 degrees - yesterday and the few days before it was in the 50s. Gotta love this stuff, right!?!

Very pretty image.

No tulips in bloom here yet in our yard at least. The daffodils are all bloomed out too.

Brian King said...

Gorgeous shot and great edit! Glad you've finally got spring weather!

Ida said...

Hooray for spring showing up for you! Wonderful and Sweet edit of the tulips. I didn't have any this year but will next as I purchased a bunch of new bulbs to plant this fall. That quote is perfect for your photo.

ah, yes, winter is dead.... finally. the tulips are blooming and the grass is green. Oh, lovely spring.

Very true - the daffodils and the tulips. But things appear to be late this year, even the daffodils didn't bloom until recently!
Lovely photos - and say hi to Massachusetts for me - I grew up in central MA.

This is lovely! You are definitely ahead of us here in northern Minnesota in the spring department.. we're getting there. But it doesn't feel like we're there yet. :)
