Sunlit tulips



Participating in Sunlit Sunday and Mosaic Monday. Thank you, Karen and Judith, for hosting!






















As I wrote earlier, these tulips don't look like the image on the package promised (see below), but they are pretty anyway... :)








Wishing you sunny and sprightly days!

  8. Sweet Desire indeed - I'm desiring them for my garden come Spring Sara.
    Beautiful tulips that look as though they are made of silk.
    Your photography is amazing - do you mind telling me which camera you use?!
    I've just had a birthday and a camera is on my list - I need a good zoom.

    1. Thank you, Shane!
      I'm very happy to use my brother's old Canon EOS 450D and I take most of my photos using a Canon EF-S 55–250mm f/4–5.6 IS lens.
      Belated Happy Birthday! :)

  14. Your tulips are wonderful, they look pretty close to the packet. Perhaps you just take much better photos than they do! The sun sets them off a treat. Please can you send some rays in this direction.
    Happy Sunday Sara :)

  27. Hi, Sara,
    Such lovely flower garden! I like those soft and pink petals. They are beautifully shinning in the sunlit. Happy new week,Sara!

  28. Totta, ei ihan sitä mitä luvattiin, mutta silti niin kovin kauniita! Mahtavaa, että tulppaaneista löytyy niin monta erilaista lajiketta ja nämä kerrotut kukat on kyllä tosi upeita. Mukavaa pääsiäisviikkoa sinne!

  37. The tulips have more pink than the package photo but still are a gorgeous variety. Perhaps their colour will true to the package over time?

  38. So pretty! Happy First Week of Spring, Sara!

  39. Aivan hehkuvan suloisia nuo kerrotut tulppaanit. Ne ovat varmaan upeita myös kukinnan ollessa jo vähän ohi.

  40. Such gorgeousness in these beautiful flowers, the colours are so delicious~

  41. Wonderful, Sara !!! Pretty flowers, have a beautiful color. Thanks for sharing ;)
    Besos.

  42. Onpa hurjan kauniita tulppaaneja. Minusta on mielenkiintoista, miten aika usein tulppaanit varioivat siitä, mitä paketti lupaa. Ja niinhän se on, että välillä erilaisuus on positiivista, välillä negatiivista, tällä kertaa sanoisin, että molempi parempi.

  44. Of course, pink is my favorite color so these gorgeous tulips are wonderful. Some how package images don't always follow through with their promise. I wonder if they use Photoshop? Certainly they do. Gorgeous photos.

  45. Tuohon kerrottujen tulppaanien kollaasiin voisi sukeltaa!
