After the Rain-135/365

These are my absolute favourite tulips that we have in the garden. There are just two flowers that appear, each year. And they seem to last for weeks before dying off. I was photographing these at the time of the raccoon saga and just yesterday after a sudden downpour I happened to see that they are still there, but soon will be over.  So here they are, early for #tulipsaturday  curated by +Measie Elizabeth, +Marilyn Benham +Eustace James

Heart of the Matter – 70/365

Yes, I am still here! Yes, I am still taking pictures for my 365 project (most days). But life is getting in the way. I am in the middle of the demolition of my kitchen including some structural work (stuff you find in old houses when you open up walls). It will be followed by rebuilding, in due course. I am not doing the work as you probably guess, but it means that everything is covered in dust and there is rubble everywhere you look. There are still games of blue ball going on, so generally there is lots of fun and excitement. I am documenting the work going on but that is a private project, not to bore everyone on G+.

Steven went out the other night to pick up something we needed and came back with a lovely bunch of tulips. So this was my subject for day 70 and featured in other photographs after then.
