Red Tulip Macro

red-tulip-macro-with-logo
At this time of the year my favourite store where I get most of my vegetables and fruit also carries Tulips in bunches.    I am compelled to purchase a few bunches every week to give me that happy feeling of colour when all around me is a sea of white.   This week I purchased different hues of pinky-red.   Are you feeling this need to see more colour too?   I have marked on my calendar some dates that suggests that Spring is not too far off with some of the flower shows starting in February.   You will see more flowers on my posts as time goes on.    Hurray.
I am joining Laura for Macro Friday   Have a great weekend.   Valerie

Valerie, beautiful picture! Just what I needed today with all the white snow falling.
What a vibrant bloom! I found 2 more witchhazels opening their buds today and a pulmonaria along with primroses. It's a great feeling seeing the plants come to life again.

I love it! I really like the soft, blended colors in the background too! I actually just got a nice bouquet today from my husband for our 5th anniversary! ...I'm anxiously waiting for some good lighting to take shots of it!

It's hard to believe the flower and garden shows are right around the corner – but it's a good thing that they are! I'm glad you have the tulips to cheer you up – won't be long now until you have lots of color around!

I buy all kind of flowers to give me colors. I'm quite bored for snow white and we have 5 months white time. My home is painted bright colors for that reason so I manage the whole winter:)

Abstract Flowers

I found this photo in my Lightroom files yesterday and I decided to join Bonnie for her monthly Pixel Dust Photo Art PhotoArtFriday. Her theme this month was funny enough abstract art.  So I added one of her textures called Si  Belle to my abstract flowers and that is it.

First Birthday

Yesterday my husband and I attended our granddaughters first birthday party.  The house was alive with little ones having a fun time of running through the house.  Kenzi wanted to join it but they kept knocking her down as they sped past her.  She is a trouper though.  No tears as she got back up and tried to go with the flow again. The hitch came when she was to participate in the smash the cake ritual that all of my daughter-in-laws family do at the first birthday.  Her maternal grandmother had made the smash cake and Kenzi was supposed to get down into it with both hands and get covered in cake.   Kenzi was having no part in it.  She cried as her hand was pushed into the cake.   Oh well maybe next year.  It was lovely to see all the little babies born at the same time as Kenzi and how sweet they all were.  Kenzi’s cake was an Elmo cake.  He is her favourite character.  I am joining Mary for Mosaic Monday.  I can feel spring in the air even though we have quite a bit of snow left bu…
