TULIPS from my garden

I grew some lovely Tulips in pots this year and they have given me great pleasure so I photographed some of them and played around with the shots.  Perhaps you have a favourite?   












I have never tried this 'soft focus' effect before and am interested to see what you think of it or do you have a favourite image perhaps? 

 Many thanks for joining me today 
and also to anyone who leaves comments.

  1. Love your tulips. The soft focus effect is not for me - but I do love the water droplets in some of your macros.

  6. Beautiful tulips and photos Margaret. I especially like the pictures with water droplets. I can't make up my mind about the soft focus although it does give an interesting effect :)

  7. Aren't they lovely. You have given me an idea. I will be container gardening once we move. I can plant tulips in a pot next fall and enjoy them next spring. Thanks for the inspiration.

  8. Your tulips are great looking. Experimentation is always good as we get to push our creative boundaries. Your fourth shot is my favorite, but they are all beautiful.
