Sunday Safari

It is too cold for bugs out in the wild.

Like the tulips I lean towards the sun.

I turn the pages of my book.

I smell the indoor gardens.

I go on a safari in my mind.

I am a bee.

I fly to the hyacinth.

I kiss the tulips.

Their colors reflect in the windows.
It is a cold January safari.

Sherry, those pics are so beautiful! I love the way you come right up to the flower for a close-up. Really shows off the blossoms. I'll bet those hyacinth's smell heavenly.
Happy Sunday Safari!

Mind safaris have the benefit of being entirely in your control!

You make even a day indoors sound so great and exciting!
Beautiful flowers, lovely colours.

Dear Sue,
Thank you. My husband just bought the book for us and all the bug plates were just fantastic. Put me in the mood to do a safari.
Glad you enjoyed it.

Dear Lisa,
As you know I have a vivid imagination....Not too hard for me to be a bee.
