A little bit of color! - A photo heavy post!!

Well, its raining outside, and I am working from home today :).
I love it when the seasons transition. As we get ready to bid the winter goodbye, and welcome spring, I thought I will color up things a little bit. (Hence the blog template change and a photo-post). Lately, I have been obsessed with the color yellow. And it is quite evident from my recent photographs I posted on facebook. I brought home a bunch of yellow tulips recently, and tortured them to death by making them pose for me. Later a bunch of Narcissus had to bear the brunt of my (and hubby's) cameras. I never knew there was a flower called Narcissus, until we visited the farmers market a few weekends back, and saw these absolutely gorgeous yellow (but, of course!) and pale white flowers. It has a very sweet smell, similar to the mogra flowers that are common in India. Another flower that is making abundant appearance during this time is the cherry blossoms. I am not a big fan of pink, but the blossom's delicate structure complements pink color so beautifully, that I can endure the pink in this case. Anyways, without further ado, I shall post the flower pics (those who are in my fb friend list, will find the pics familiar :)).
