Color!

In dreams, I occasionally dip my hands into a bucket filled with color to experience the sensation of pure color -- all manner of colors. Which is to say that I love red and I love purple and blue and yellow and green and pink and, Miss Kate of the Uintas, certainly orange. The more colors, the happier I am.

The dotter kept this in mind when she organized my new apartment. And then, as frosting on this particular cake, she -- never a tulip person -- persuaded a supermarket florist to sell her a mixed lot, not because of their form but because of the bright colors. This stunning bouquet was sitting on my new little dining table when I arrived at my new home. Isn't that orange rimmed with yellow a beauty?

After I finished with the flower photography, the Sson, who'd just arrived, couldn't resist further exploration of the tulips, above and below.

Those strips of color at the back of the futon are just some of the pillow cases in my collection. You should see them in combination with my red or the black bed sheets.

More from Her Maj: Now that I'm home with my very own, comfy computer to play with, I thought I should check back with S. Weasel, author of the wonderful "Her Maj is Watching" artwork. Lo and behold, I found this! No wonder I'm feeling better.

Those tulips were exceptional and of course they were for an exceptional person....life without those daughters would not be worth living.

Great photos of such lovely tulips. So great to see you blogging away again. Something to look forward to each day. Just keep up those exercises and all will be well.

Wonderful colour, Granny. Nothing like it to cheer one up. As to Her Majesty's greeting to "one hundreders", just think - if it had not been for the Boston Tea Party, etc. you "colonials" would still benefit!
(Great to have you back)
