Tulip play

Filed Under spring | 25 comments

I am always amazed at the strength of flowers… they will push through the snow or cold.  Teaches me perhaps I can weather storms that I hadn’t thought of before.

Indulge me as I experiment with various texture applications on my newest photos.

Tulips are the most wonderful models!


As Spring starts to join us slowly… may your Easter weekend bring forth a wonderful rebirth in many things.

Biggest hugs!


PS is a weekend of celebrating Easter and spring — stop by for some lovely sights at Beverlys.

    I know the Tulip is your fav flower, and look how beautiful these are with those words.
    Claudia, you will surely have to teach me some cool tricks with my camera when we meet in Oct. I have a Nikon D80. You know I know nothing about photography : )
    Happy Easter Weekend my dear friend.

  4. Hi Claudia,

    I love the tulips and you are right in that if a flower can weather a storm so can we…nature has a definite way of balancing us if we pay attention to the energy that it gives us. Have a blessed Easter!

    Pink Sparkles for your day,
    Stephanie ♥

    Easter Greetings! I’m new to your site thru Nature Tales and Trails, a wonderful nature blog I visit daily! I enjoyed visiting your blog! We have similar interests- I went to art school and look for the redeeming beauty of each day in this sometimes harsh world. Due to the deaths of several over family members, I’ve also learned to appreciate each day as a true gift. A kind word or gesture can make all the difference in a day! I post a blog under the name, Farmhouse Greetings, too.

  25. Claudia,

    Simply beautiful.

    A sweet baby bunny has made himself at home in my garden and feasted on my tulips. Out of 100 planted only three remain. (I’m guessing red isn’t his favorite ‘flavor’!) : )

    Your Friend,
