A great spring scene: the green of the house corresponds nicely with the lawn and the tulips, but the lady's warm clothes show that temps are still not too high. I like it!

The tulips threw me for a moment - as the leaves turn colors. Happy spring to you Margie! This image is lovely.

I really like the cream and green color scheme there . . it all looks so established.

@Ronnie 2¢: Hey thanks Ronnie. I liked the colours too, and the way she was just waiting patiently... before hurling herself into a vigorous game of croquet! :)

What a perfect image. I love how you framed the foreground and the woman deep in thought is a nice touch. Good find.

@Kelela: Thank you! At the time I wished I'd been able to get a bit closer but I liked the result in the end.
