    The gray background really makes it pop! Lovely Eliza ๐ŸŒท

  2. I absolutely love the vibrant colors against the gray background! Beautiful capture! โค

  3. Nice us of light. Beautiful shot.

  4. I was going to ask if it was a tulip, but I see that tagging helped me answer my own question. Gorgeous photo. I am like an anxious kid here with the bulbs I planted last fall. I keep checking to see if they’ve grown at all (note: they don’t seem to, at least at the rate I seem to think they should, which is a rate that would be quite unnatural).

    • Eliza Waters says:

      If they are tulips, you may have to wait ’til May, unless they are the short, early ones. Most of the bulbs I plant are earlies, esp. snowdrops and crocus, that come up when I really need to see some life and color. I seldom plant tulips, as the voles devour them over winter and I’m dismayed for the loss. I have lots of narcissus, which are poisonous and are left alone.

      • They are starting to come up (the leaves at least) – and I am happily surprised at the number. Tons of what look like tulips, though so far not many that look like daffodils (except the ones I planted).

    Lovely shot Eliza!

  14. It’s hard to catch drama in flora shots Eliza but you nailed it in this one. The tulip angst is palpable 8^)

  15. Laurie Graves says:

  16. Robbie says:

    As usualy-Eliza:-) beautiful-Happy Spring!

  17. Kathy Sturr says:

    It’s like Spring unfurling in all its vibrance and jubilation!

  18. I love the angle you chose for this photograph…and the was the sun seems to peel it open…Beautiful, Eliza!

  19. Correct the above—to read: …and the way the sun seems to peel it open!” Typed too quickly! Sorry!

  20. Kris P says:

    Absolutely gorgeous! I SO wish I could grow tulips but, even if the bulbs are properly chilled in the fridge for 6 weeks prior to planting, our hot Santa Ana winds inevitable take all or most out while still in bud.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thank you, Kris! Yes, tulips definitely like cool weather and soil. I don’t have many in the garden because of rodents dining on them. But forced for inside in winter, they are divine!

  21. Phenomenal! Oh my gosh, the everything about this image evokes such deep emption. Wow, Eliza! Thank you!

  22. Robin says:
