My recent trip to my old neighborhood allowed me to see and photograph beautiful blooms that I rarely see where I currently live. It is now June and around my neck of the woods, the tulips only bloomed in the last couple of weeks and are now spent. I feel somewhat robbed of my Spring!
The high desert isn't the most colorful of places. Some find hillsides spotted with juniper trees to be a beautiful sight. But to me, I miss the lush, green hills of the Willamette Valley and the abundant flowers. Yes it rains a lot there ... but I LOVE the rain! And look how colorful the rain makes everything.
Such lovely colors.
