These shots are sheer magic!

Rain does tend to leave blue skies in its wake but sometimes the rain is reluctant to leave.

Your first shot could have been made in the Netherlands with those great tulips.
I specially the second photo, there are some beautiful colours in the sky.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
Greetings from the Netherlands.

The Tulips were lovely this year---specially on the days we had some sunshine.
I wish I had of known you were up this way I wouldn have said HELLO! MB

Rachel Hope said...

Stunning Shots!

lizziviggi said...

Hey, those tulips look familiar! ;-)
I love the angle you chose.

It would be great to get together when you're up here. Are you coming up to Bellingham, or staying in Anacortes? Either way, it'd be fun to meet!

I'm so glad you got some nice weather for your pictures! It has been even more hit-and-miss than usual.

Lynette Killam said...

Beautiful shots, Linnea! I can picture you down on the ground to get that wonderful perspective on the tulips. What won't we do for a great photo...LOL!?

LauraX said...

stunning view through the tulips!

Ebie said...

Amazingly beautiful! What a great day to be shooting the tulips!

jeannette said...

Oh my goodness, the colors in your pic have the colors of the Dutch flag (red/white/blue - horizontal stripes). Me thinks that there are few Dutchmen (I'm one) who do not like tulips:)

Leovi said...

Both extremely beautiful. Tulips with beautiful color and excellent prospect. The second one beautiful shades of sunset.

Genie said...

Your pictures of Washington Park and of the tulips are so beautiful. You all are so lucky to live where the flowers and all the wonderful fruits and vegetables are surrounding you. I think your part of the world is heavenly...even with the rain. Love the shots this week.

Carolyn Ford said...
