a reason to get up

I've tried not to post photos of my flowers. It seems indulgent, off topic, and as if I have nothing to say about what's going on with my art life. I'm giving in today, because sometimes the art and even more so - the 'life' - over whelms me and I have trouble facing the day. I know that this is all part of being alive, part of the emotional ride, and that once I have some time and space to catch my breath and actually breathe, I'll be revived. But for now, looking at these perky up-right blobs of colour and smelling the wonderful fresh air here in my own yard is reason enough to get out of bed. Aren't tulips wonderful?

Yes! Maybe you need to just sit a while in that lovely seat surrounded by golden tulips...

I'd love to pop over and sit in one of those lovely wooden chairs amid the yellow tulips and have an early morning cuppa with you.
Enjoy your lovely spring garden, I hope it lifts your spirits.

Someone said that spring is a greeting card from God. Whatever one's beliefs, or lack thereof, this is a lovely thought. Tulips are probably my favorite flower.

They have always been my favourite flower.

i hope it's not indulgent and off-topic -- i've actually been taking a certain delight in noticing how many fiber artists also take great pleasure in their gardens...
and yes, tulips are lovely!

I agree with Dee and Rosemary - flowers are nourishment for the spirit. And your tulips are lovely.
