First poppy

The very first poppy of the season! I love them. They are glorious for about 2-3 weeks each summer and then the blooms die off and I am left with a giant ugly spot in my yard. I was hoping to move them to a different location before they bloomed this spring, but didn't get to it in time. I will have to try to get it done later in the summer.

The back of this tulip reminds me of a pinwheel, one of my favorite childhood toys. :)

Tulips on the fence

So far, this is my favorite photo of the tulips this year. I love the texture combos!

Tulip Time!

There is absolutely nothing besides my children that I enjoy photographing more than flowers...and I am lucky enough to have plenty of photo opportunities right in my own backyard! Each spring we order...hyacinth, crocus, daffodil, tulip, iris and gladiolus bulbs. And then we have poppies, columbine, lilac, our rose garden, all the fruit trees, and honeysuckle. I love my gardens!

I know it has been a long time since my last post...I apologize. If you read my other blogs, you probably know the reason for the long absence! So I will start off with a photo I took today of some tulips and hyacinth in my front yard, and I will try to be diligent about posting something new each day or two. :) Enjoy!
