Orange Emperor<br>Finalist - June 2011

Uploaded: June 01, 2011 21:09:40 | Entered: August 31, 2015 23:04:11


Spring has finally arrived and I now have a few tulips blooming. Tomorrow we shall have rain, boomers and perhaps a tornado? Go figure spring can't just settle in. At least I got this shot before the wind whips it away to Kansas.
