Tulips To Brighten My Day

Well today has been a sort of a boring day - do you ever get days like that?  Nondescript grey days!!!

 This morning I went with Danny to get his eyes tested and order new glasses - that took a good couple of hours!! 
When we got home it was time for lunch - I made sausage rolls the other day and we had what was left of them - they were quite tasty!!!
 Then we went to buy the paint for our hall walls, ceiling and also for all the woodwork. Hopefully Dan will start that tomorrow - but we will wait and see. I've learned just to take it as it comes.



I had to drop into town the afternoon to buy some birthday cards and I thought to myself "I know what I need - some flowers""  he he.  So I bought myself some tulips - they are such  bright and cheery flower don't you think?  
Anyway it gave me something to take pictures of. I've not been out to take photos for a few days - the weather here just isn't  calling out to me :(

We will see what tomorrow is like.

The tulips (and your photos) are gorgeous. I bought myself some little crocuses to put in my kitchen window - for the same reason. They're bright and cheery and make me think it's springtime!

Rose said...

Buying flowers for myself sounds like such a good idea...think you are going to convert me. If nothing else, just spend a few bucks to buy something more to plant in the yard!!!
