    Those tulips are stunning,, so pretty! Nice photography, Lilly! :D This looks like a floral bouquet.. thanks for sharing!

    Pesky squirrels have eaten all of my tulip bulbs -- I had one tulip to bloom this year...one of my favorite early bloomers in the spring..

    My candy-tuft is blooming now, it is a big round mound mass of snow white blooms.. I might share a picture of it later on..

    Thank you Addy, I would love to see your Candy-tuft. Reminds me my orchid is in bloom and has been for the last four months. I took a picture a couple days ago, I'll see if I can find it.

    orchid2.

    You have to double click on it to get the correct size. Maybe not.

    Thanks Addy, some are really not that hard to grow. At this point I give her 3 ice cubes a week and sing to her.:D

    That is a pretty nice surprise and such a big bloom.. I would never have thought of using ice cubes though.

    The leaves remind me of African Violets.. they are finicky little plants to grow.. Ice cubes would kill them right off..They prefer tepid water, pretty,, just hard to grow, unless the lighting, feeding, watering is exactly suitable.

    You are so right the African Violets are very hard to grow and that is why I was so surprised....guess it likes me to be gone, less singing lol....that last pic is an African Violet.

    Your red Azaleas are Brilliant.:clap2:

    That is funny, Lilly.. My Mom used to talk to her plants too.. :D I thought the last picture was an African Violet, I have one almost the same color.. It's looking healthy right now,, hope I don't end up killing the poor thing with too much direct light.. They are worth all the trouble despite their finicky nature!:)

    Thanks, Lilly.. that particular Azalea I have had it for a long time.. actually more years than I can remember.

    Dandelion from today

    This is not the quality I want it to be, however it probably will give you an idea of what I am trying to do. It was taken inside, I will have to get one outside but not bright sun.

    dandelion #2 lg.

    Shows up fine on mine, Lil! When taking a pic in the sunshine I always have a whiteout.. always better on a cloudy day. But I am not using expensive cams or equipment.. no filters,, etc..
