Earth Day 2010 - Tulips in my Garden

Photos of Tulips taken in my garden today to celebrate Earth Day.

When we contemplate the whole globe as one great dewdrop, striped and dotted with continents and islands, flying through space with other stars all singing and shining together as one, the whole universe appears as an infinite storm of beauty." - John Muir
"What I know in my bones is that I forgot to take time to remember what I know. The world is holy. We are holy. All life is holy. Daily prayers are delivered on the lips of breaking waves, the whisperings of grasses, the shimmering of leaves." - Terry Tempest Williams

"Everything in the world has a hidden meaning ....Men, animals, trees, stars, they are all hieroglyphics. When you see them you do not understand them. You think they are really men, animals, trees, stars. It is only years later that you understand." - Nikos Kazantzakis

The colour in those tulips is just striking. WOW. Can you imagine a dress or skirt made in that colour? Talk about a headturner. Beautiful photos!

Hi Ann - Great to see you - Happy Earth day to you! :-)

Selma - yes they are an amazing colour aren't they - I really don't know whether I would be brave enough to wear a dress that colour! You are right, it really would turn heads.

Thanks both for your comments - I was really pleased with the photos I just discovered how to use the macro setting on my camera! :-)
