A Lovely Day

 Today is a glorious day - huge orange sun in the sky and a bit chilly - just the kind of morning I love. 

 I even been to the gym (are you impressed - I am lol).So feeling quite good this morning. 

 Poor Emma is sitting exams at school at the moment and on top of all that she has a very sore throat and has had for over a week now. Got her an appointment at the doctor this afternoon I don't want her getting any worse. Hopefully it will just be a simple throat infection that can be cleared up with a course of antibiotics.

 Anyway that's my day so far. 

 I was taking lots and lots of pictures of my tulips (as I normally do) and I came across these two. I just love the gorgeous colours - it's amazing how different they look when you get in really close.  
Hope you like them too!!!

Have a great day everyone!!!!

Aren't tulips so pretty! I love buying them too :)
I especially like the pink one, but that is only because I am partial to pink. haha!
Hope you have a great week ahead!
Hope Emma feels better -- so easy to get run down this time of year.

Love your tulips -- brought some cheer to my morning. :)
