Sunday Afternoon Tulips

When I began my post about a bouquet of tulips my husband brought me on Friday, I had no idea they would open so slowly. I'm glad they are taking their time, though, because they are absolutely flawless and we have enjoyed them all weekend.

When they open completely, I plan to put all the photos together in a post or slide show, but for now, here is the way they look this afternoon (Sunday).



The heart of a tulip ...

I'm still learning to use my new macro lens, and have lost count of how many pictures I had to take to get the ones I've posted. But if that old saying, "Practice makes perfect," is true, perhaps there is hope for me yet.

To be continued ...

Wow, the ones I got took just 3 days to open, maybe mine where older when DH bought them. Enjoy the beauty as long as you can.

I have missed you and your photographs SO much, Janie! These are incredible. GORGEOUS!

I hope to be blogging again this week. I'm traveling again, and then after that, I should be up and running.

XO,

Sheila :-)
