A Bouquet of Tulips For You

We finally got the snow which usually come around mid-December.
I have had to do quite a lot of shovelling,but I refuse to complain.
The snow creates a beautiful landscape.
For today I want to look ahead to the spring season and the Tulips it brings.

All of these were photographed on my own yard,by me.
Tulips come in so many different shades and each of them beautiful


I do not have names for the various flowers as they have been in the ground for quite some time.


Each colour and shade has its own beauty.
I am thankful I don't need to pick a favourite ,as that would be nearly impossible.


I love the red,but I also love the soft colours.
For me it will be a while before I get to see the Tulips push through the ground.In the meantime I can look at these and dream of the flowers yet to come.


I think this one is the same kind as the first one,but taken from a different angle.
I love that bright colour on the inside.To see this means I have to stop and actually look at the flower. I am trying to develop the habit of slowing down and really enjoying nature and all it has too give.


Thought for Today:
Today feel the awe and wonder of God's creation.

  1. I really like that pink one! I used to have some like that and always loved the shape of them. I like the way the sun shows through the red one, too. Lovely! I can't wait for spring!

  3. I, too, like the way you've captured the light shining through the blooms on a couple of these. They're all beautiful. And the frames certainly do set them off nicely.

  4. I do feel the awe and wonder of God's creation as I enjoy your tulips - as well as when I look outside and see everything covered in white and more flakes dancing from the sky! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that shade of pink! My girls bought me a dozen of that color of tulips and they lasted longer than other other tulip bouquet I ever had. I know it can't be the color that made them last longer - but I sure enjoyed them!

  7. I WILL pick a favorite, the first and last one. So delicate, and perfectly shaped, so pale and beautiful!! We got quite a bit of snow today and schools were closed, then it is to be 70 degrees in a few days. Wild! Quite a few jonquils have come up already, they are so confused!

  11. Beautiful photos and a lovely look ahead to spring! Tulips don't do well here, so I have to buy them at the store if I want any. Today I brought home daffodils. It may still be winter outside but that doesn't mean I can't enjoy a little color inside.

  13. Of course the first is my favorite - the pink and green . . . just something about those two colors together! I found that once I started taking macro photo's - I was slowing down and really starting to pay attention to the world around me. Flowers and birds that you usually see for just a second - as you pass by - are able to be looked at so much more carefully. It's a good reminder to us to - not walk past anything - or anyone - with just a casual glance - when there is so much more on the inside too see when we take a more than just a moment!

  14. Beautiful tulips one and all.

    Thanks for sharing their beauty with us. I'm not able to grow them down here in s.e. FL so I always enjoy them via gardens on the web.

  16. Ruth, you yard must be a garden of beauty to behold....These flowers are incredible and your photography skills are amazing...

    God pulled out the stops when He started creating flowers, didn't He?

    I hope you have a good day....

  17. They're all beautiful Ruth; but my favorite one is that lovely pink!

  18. Tulips really show off in front of a camera - maybe because light comes through the petals and we often do not slow down long enough to notice. The last shot, looking down into the tulip is beautiful as well.

  19. Ruth, oh what lovely shots! I do so love the tulips! I think because of the huge variety and the wonderful colours!
    Snowed here last night. I wish spring would get here. Clocks change this weekend and it's still playing winter!

  21. I DO love Tulips, and anxiously await them each Spring. I really like what you have done with these photos too. Take care.
    Our snow is nearly all gone. YEA!

  22. Tulips...one of my favorite flowers.
    Your pictures are so beautiful and I thank you for capturing the beauty of each flower. I once had a bed of tulips and just as soon as the flower would pop out, the tiny rabbits would eat them...so frustrating but glad I could feed the bunnies..
    Blessings

  23. Each one is beautiful Ruth. I love tulips, however our climate it too warm for them to grow well. I plan to grow a handful in a pot this winter.

  27. Beautiful tulips. It's good to have photos to look back on for remembering and anticipation

  28. Those are all so beautiful. I especially like the pale pink one. I planted some similar in color but it seemed after the first year they didn't bloom in that same soft pink shade--they were other colors instead.

  30. Although I'm looking forward to spring, I also enjoy the snow because it's so beautiful. You have such gorgeous tulips!

  31. This is a beautiful bouquet you've shared with us. The colors are simply gorgeous. One advantage of walking around with a camera in hand is that I become more aware of the subtle changes I see in God's marvelous creation.

  32. These are beautiful! the deer usually eat ours before we can see them, a multi colored salad bar to them!

  33. these are so pretty ruth!! your right, good thing we don't have to pick a favorite, impossible!!

    ReplyDelete
  34. These tulip photos are stunning, Ruth! I especially like the last one with the brighter orange color on the inside of the petals. I cannot grow tulips where I live unless they are in containers because the gophers eat all of the ones planted in the ground (grrr). If the gophers don't get them, the deer do. Oh well, I have my daffodils.

  35. They're all beautiful, Ruth. You have a green thumb and great eye.
