Some color needed

Okay, I've had it with winter and levels of hell. I think I'd like to post some old flower photos 'cause I know I want to see some color and greenery. Of course, you can always click on them and check out All Sizes to see them in the large size. :)

Oh how wonderful! I needed to see that today!

Oh, very nice. But I'm still so freakin' cold here that the little water drops make me shiver!

Kittn, you're welcome. I think everyone on this side of the planet needs it right now.

Laurie, I'm glad you stopped by and saw them, then. :)

Susie, oops, sorry about the water drops. Hope the colors make up for it.

I like water drops on flowers in photos!

Thanks, JDR, so do I. Even if I have to fake 'em. :)

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens.

Why are there never whiskers on roses and raindrops on kittens? Now THAT would be entertainment!

And why do most of these flowers strike me as vaguely sexual?

Ack! Bucky, thanks, once again, for the Julie Andrews you're trying to stick in my mind.

I wouldn't say there aren't whiskers on some roses. And you know that some kitten, somewhere, is gettin' rained now, just 'cause you said so.

Flowers have no shame.

Beautiful photos. I am getting Cabin Fever here in NE WI. I want to start opening all the windows and just enjoying the fresh air but still to chilly for that one. Another month and we will more than likely be able to do all that. Winter sucks but hey not much we can do about it unless you have a million PLUS dollars to own more than one home. One in the North and then one in the South. Well thanks again for sharing. Tweets.

Alex and I are both sick of winter. He has been so hyper today that I think he has cabin fever.

The photos as, as usual, magnificent and bring some much needed warmth to my soul. Thank you, Squirl.

Absolutely gorgeous. Very hopeful, happy pics and I happen to be in a very 'visually hungry' sort of mood right now. Thanks, Squirl!!

Tweets, thanks! I guess we're all getting cabin fever these days. But, yes, it will be spring soon.

Nick, I hope you and Alex can be warm again soon. Especially since you haven't been feeling well. So glad that nature and I could at least warm your soul. Thank you. :)

Lynn, I hope this assuaged your "visual hunger" for a bit. Thanks!

What a nice change of pace from the winter snow and blah. It makes me want to go to the grocery and buy flowers - if I could manage to get them home without freezing.

Nice photos! I'm so glad you posted them. :-)

See, and that is another reason why I love you and Bucky -- you bring me flowers, and Bucky turns them into an ear worm. ;)

Oh, so pretty and cheery! Thanks for sharing those, Squirls.

P.S. That last one looks a little...umm...dirty. Hee!

Blogger Squirl said...

Danielle, it is hard to want to bring flowers out into the cold just yet. Soon, soon...

Eclectic, that's what family's for, right?

Ladybug, hi! I was gonna suggest you stop over, even if you didn't want to comment, just for a little color and cheer. I'm so glad you found your way over.

And, I even cropped that last one.
Circumcision is not exactly the word, though. ;-)

Y'know, I usually think Fushias are rather gawdy, but I really like the colours of the ones in the first picture. I'm getting a little sick of winter and ready for some colour, too.

I love flowers and these have amazing color. Thanks for coloring my world!

Courtney, fuschias are pretty flamboyant, but that color seems really nice right now.

MD, I'm glad you lurve the flowers. I sure do, too.

Nina, glad to be of service, coloring your world. :-)

That last one is almost vulgar.

I'm okay with that.

As always, Squirl, your photos are amazing. I love the brightness - thank you for putting them up there. :)

Very lovely and much appreciated. While I have no snow or ice I am pretty sick of the rain. But buds and sprouts are popping up everywhere. I hope I can post some flowers soon too.

Blogger Squirl said...

Bone, that one was my favorite, too. I even cropped and enlarged that one show off its obvious charms.

Thanks, Platypus, glad you enjoyed them.

Kranki, please do post photos of new live growth. It will be a while before we get to that point around here.
But pictures of Yoshi definitely help in the meantime. :)

The top pic looks like ballerina's dancing...the bottom one looks like something I shouldn't mention, but all in all, lovin' the flowers... definitely something we need right about now! I've had enough snow for the week!

Hugs from me--Katrina sends one too!

Blogger Squirl said...

Bone, the plant has no shame.

Effie, yeah, time for something besides lots of white. And, yes, the last picture is the naughtiest of them all.
