Store bought Tulips

The tulips in this store bought spring bouquet were a delicate shade of pink which inspired me to pull out my macro lens to appreciate the view from the inside of them.
I'm linking with Little Red House for Mosaic Monday and Lisa's Chaos for Macro Monday.

  1. Store-bought tulips are one of life's little luxuries at this time of year. I try to keep a bouquet in sight, always. When the tulips come up in the planters and beds I can't bear to cut them!

  2. Such a cheery bouquet of spring flowers. And just think of all the work that goes on deep inside that tulip. Good camera work there!

  4. Our supermarket has a wonderful selection of seasonal flowers. Spring is when I can’t help myself from bringing home a bouquet! Lovely tulips and Iris. I love your close up snaps. I’ve want to learn how to make photos like these. Beautiful Judith!

  5. Judith, lovely macro shots. I love tulips and the pretty color. We are late to bloom around here so any flowers I would have would have to be store bought. Have a great week and Happy Easter!

  8. Your store bought tulips are pretty -- any and all blooming things today on the prairie are huddled under a blanket of snow!

  9. The entire spring bouquet is so pretty. The colors are in perfect harmony. Your mosaic perfectly captures the pale pink insides of those tulips.

  24. I am visiting for the first time after seeing a comment you made on another blog. From what I can see, your blog is lovely. When I lived in Maine as a child, a large lilac tree bloomed outside my bedroom window. I can still smell the lovely scent of lilacs. Sad to say that lilacs are not happy in south Mississippi heat! I am a new follower and am looking forward to reading more. I would be love for you to visit me at Still Woods Farmhouse when you get a chance.

  26. The pink tulips make such a pretty bouquet with the irises!

  27. Very nice details.

    The truth of the matter is that I was surrounded by bikes in a bike park and I was just waiting for my family to organise themselves when I took the bike bling images!

  30. So soft, with beautiful lighting...well done, Judith.

    Don't you wish we had some of our OWN tulips blooming? I am soooo sick of winter. We just got 3" of snow overnight & more to come. Yuck!

    Stay warm,

  31. Goodness Judith, store bought flowers are always cheery no matter what the weather, aren't they? Your's look very spring-like and lovely. I love irises to pieces too. Do you grow them? I can't get enough of them in the garden. For years I wanted a big black one, (well, very dark purple), this year I'm going to buy it. :)
