      • Juliet loves it so much..she wants the photo!

        • Wow, that’s really nice. I’d be happy to send you a full resolution copy. I just off-loaded several files of photos onto my back-up drive (to make room for new photos from yesterday and today), and I think this one was in that batch; but I’ll be retrieving a few in the next few days for an upload to a different site, so I’ll grab this one and send it to you. And yeah, man, let’s talk poetry. I see you have several other poems I need to read. I’ll look forward to it.

  12. That is giant! And gorgeous, I like the soft clouds in the composition.

    • Yes, it was much larger than the average size (and looks even bigger because of the perspective, of course). I’m amazed at the size of some of the tulips I’m seeing around here. 🙂 Thank you for your nice words, Karen. I’m always grateful for your visits.

    A tulip-shaped hot air balloon. That’s precisely what I thought when I saw it. This thing is startlingly gorgeous with the blue sky. Did you photoshop the sky?

    • 🙂 I like that! A tulip-shaped hot air balloon! I don’t have photoshop. So, nope! That sky was all real. I was lying beneath the flower when I took the shot in Miss Mary’s garden.

        WOW. You got lucky with the clouds in just the right place, I think. Good ole Miss Mary… You gotta’ tell us the story about her. Do you have fire ants? Ha Ha You know I’m all gloom and doom, huh?
