Surprise on the River. I love Tulips and Spring flowers!
Came home after running some errands this morning and spotted this thru my window.
I decided to go outside and take a closer look. It looks like a fishing boat ran aground. The river is tidal all the way up to Mission and I'm thinking that these guys weren't aware and moored overnight. You can see another smaller boat to it's right side.
A slightly different angle and you can see more of the sandy bottom being covered by the tide coming in.
There are two guys sitting with their backs along the left side appearing to be talking with someone on the other boat.
It looks like they will be heading off soon. In fact I just checked and they appear to have been able to get under way and sail off.
Love the look of these tulips fully opened.
Grape Hyacinth under the roses.
Pincushion daisies showing off.
Pink tulips about to burst forth.
Love the tie dye look to this one.
Forget Me Not under an azalea.
Rogue red tulip amongst the grape hyacinth and roses.
A bit farther look at that tulip.
Wall flowers in bloom.
Love this colour combination.
These were planted at the front of our condo last fall.
Hmm,,,remind you of anything? Working on my leaves and still have two more sizes of tulips to finish before I can start sewing the background and then the fun part.
By the way, it looks like we are heading towards another rainfall record for April!
