Spring and Tulips


Spring came and gone, but somehow I did not manage to capture the beauty that came with it. No doubt it must be the most gloomest and wettest Spring that I had ever encountered since I was here a few years back. Our tulips in the garden had already flowered and now wilted among the wild grass and bushes that grow wildly in its place. Where were my other spring flowers? Where was I all these time??? Sadly to say, I did not take many pictures this time around. But here is some pictures to remind me of Spring 2012. Hopefully this bright beautiful tulips will enlighten the hearts of some of you outhere, as it did mine.

Purple, red, yellow, orange and white - all from the garden
Ohhh there is a pink one as well !!

Marinahunny,

Kadang2 bunga tulip ni memang nampak macam plastik, terutama kalau yang masih kuncup tu.

CatFromSydney,

Aichoo!! Nasib baik kami ni tak allergic, kalau tidak merana la dengan polen2 yang berterbangan tu.. :)

Suffia,

Spring here is quite funny this time. It is the coldest and wettest April ever, but end of April the temp shot up in the 20s, but now it is around 11/13 C. Apapun, alhamdulillah :D

Cheqna,

I did get some pix of the tulip farms, the ones that we went, but it was too early so most of the tulips had not bloomed yet :D
