I'm not feeling anything obvious to blaaaahhhg (I detest this word and want a replacement) about today so I'm offering up a pretty picture of tulips for your enjoyment. I took this picture when we met my Aunt Caroline and her family in Richmond on Easter '09 for lunch at Pf Chang's. Weird choice for Easter you may say, but it was also my cousin Ally's 18th birthday.
I was hoping to see tulips at Duke Gardens last week but alas, they were gone.

Instead we saw these (yes I should know what they are but I've told you about my relationship with plants before...). Pretty, huh?

And these.

The above are ornamental onions. They look like they belong on Pandora. Too cool.

So yes, I was disappointed not to see my tulips, but look what was in store for me instead!

Now if only I could turn all of life's "disappointments" into enchanting surprises...

The ornamental onions picture is really gorgeous - very artistic composition. You could start selling your photographs - another money-making scheme! :-)
