Day 364 of this project! It's hard to believe that year 1 is almost over, so with one day left I decided to post a lone tulip that hasn't opened yet and it looks like it might not as the rest of the tulips have all opened up and fallen over.. this one is still standing.. It's great to see so many in the Dailies still going strong year after year!. Happy New Year's Eve-Eve
This is the first Apricot blossom I've seen so far this year... it's the only one I found on this tree in my mom's backyard.. Who knows if it survived the 40+mph wind this afternoon... These blossoms are fairly small and I caught this with my 200mm lens.. So I'm actually surprised at the amount of detail that is there.
I'm not sure that these are Lilacs, but I believe they are a wild form a Lilac, so I'm sticking with it til further notice! :) Had a fun day in the Mountains today, nice to get out of the summer heat for a few hours!
I love it when my wife brings home flowers! Which is probably a reminder that I need to remember to bring them home more often, but that's a lesson for another day... I liked the way this came out. http://douglassandquist.com/bag-tulips/
