“TULIP DREAM”

image

Top o’ the Sunday morn’ to ya’ll! It is cloudy and forecasted to thunderstorm here in the great Adk’s of the USA!  I am hoping for a good storm, one with thunder that cracks so loud noises t makes you jump out of your seat!

For your viewing pleasure today, my latest pic for my NCPR photo of the day folio. These are purple tulips in my neighbor’s garden that I shot a few days ago. I downloaded the Sony Sketch app for my tablet the other day and edited the tulips to look like a painting. Here’s the original below: (taken with my galaxy tab!)

As you can see, I cropped and then took the paint brush to it to smudge the background to bring the tulips fro t and center to get the commanded appreciation that they deserve!  See my photo of the day here and cast a vote!

Diary of a Lily: First Entry

doal_03322nd March 2016

Dear Diary,

It is my second day in my new home. Though I have a couple marks in my leaves from handling at the store, I like my new home.  The woman always declares how much she loves my fragrance, to anyone who will listen.  The Baby is also enthusiastic about my presence, though her presence scares me and I fear for my life. I have overheard the woman saying how the baby mauled the Kordana rosebush a few times and they almost didn’t make it.

Speaking of those roses…those roses that think they are so pretty. There is only one rose on the bush so far but I know there will be many more to follow.  The Kordana looks like it is happy here too.  It can be happy all it wants, as long as it stays there in its spot in the sun.  I am special enough to have my own spot on top of a cabinet, to greet everyone as they come into our room. They may be pretty and the woman may brag how pretty the one rose is, but it is I who fill the air with such euphoric floral essence.

I am already a celebrity around here. The woman took my picture after we got home from the store and submitted it to the NCPR website for Photo of the Day.  My picture was featured today as Photo of the Day today, and I know that I have made the woman proud. See my pic here on the NCPR website:

I heard her saying she was going to put me into something called a portfolio, which wounds pretty important to me.  From what I gather, you have to be pretty special to end up in this portfolio thing.

*Yawn* It is quarter after six and the sun is getting ready to set. I must retire for the evening to get my beauty rest so that I may continue to dazzle everyone.  I know I shall be featured again because the woman just can’t help but to want to tell the world about me.  I think she wants me to be as famous I as I want to be famous.
