Friday "My Town" Shootout--Yard objects!!

Since I live in an apartment, I don't have a yard.... so I went to my parents' house and used theirs!

There are tulips abound in the backyard, and a lot of the bulbs have grown together, giving us these "hybrids". Also growing are purple and white tulips!

Another thing about living in California... fresh fruits and veggies! My parents have two orange trees, plus an ever-bearing lemon tree. I can't remember the last time they actually bought citrus!

Lastly, just as an amusing aside, this little guy peeks out from amongst the daffodil greens.

Now go enjoy the sunshine!


  1. Fantastic pictures! What beautiful pictures. I would love to have citrus growing in my yard - every morning a fresh orange with breakfast. WOW!

  2. What a great tulip. Looks almost like a piece of candy in a candy store.

  3. The tulip is absolutely gorgeous. And the, you can't get fruit that looks that good here in the grocery stores. Lucky parents you have. Nice pics.

  4. those tulips are amazing! how cool to have citrus trees in your yard. great job!!

  5. Beautiful flowers, and I want to pick that orange! I could think of so many recipes I would use it for! Thanks for sharing with us...

  6. Have you noticed that the orange is directly above the rabbit's head.
    If it ripens and falls he could possibly be dead!
    Poetry 101 class has begun,
    And, thanks lots, for your great shots.

  7. I love the tulip shot! Excellent photos!
