My friend Jan and I went renuncling last weekend. (Pronounced re-nun-kul-ing)

Renuncling. v The act of shopping for renunculus.

Renunculating. v The act of deciding which renunculus to select.

Renunclrama n. The event during which one renunculates.

I especially loved the tight buds...

...and the array of colors!

For a woman who has been seeing way too much gray sky, this was like a magical mystery tour!

My poor camera didn't even know how to focus or measure color -- no white balance here!

Honestly, it was beautiful.

And as you can see, my cart runneth over.

Now if only they'll last till Easter!

Quite a week -- and don't forget to stop by Wednesday for a link to a beautiful blog where I will be guest blogger that day!

My new vocabulary word:) Wonderful! I am SO anxious for color here...there is hope in the green shoots of the tulips, but that's all we got!

Wow! I forgot how pretty these flowers were. I have to get me some of those.

I have always want to plant "them" but have yet to do so. It gets so darned hot here, I don't know if they would make it. I'm looking to cooler weather, already! haha.

These are beautiful! Are you going to plant them? I've seen them in gardening catalogs, but seems like they aren't recommended for here.
