fPhoto Friday - Tulips!

Spring is finally arriving in our area and I couldn't be happier about that! Our trees have new buds, grass is turning green and the tulips and daffodils are just starting to bud and bloom. Flowers are some of my favorite photo subjects, especially tulips! While I wait for this year's blooms, I thought I'd share some of God's amazing artistry from last spring, taken at a nearby park...

Hope it's warming up wherever you are! For more fPhoto Friday, stop by and see Natalie of Married to the Preacher. Happy Weekend!

Beautiful. THe yellow/red combo it unique. I've seen the red/white.

I thought FOR SURE you would make some comment about the first picture. Am I the only one who noticed the single yellow among the reds? Or am I the only dipstick that is awed by it?
I've been emailing to your work and home from both my hotmail and gmail.
Love ya,

These are absolutely beautiful!

Kaylan said...

Oh my goodness! They are beautiful!! I'm in love with the yellow and red!! Where in the world did you get the bulbs for them?

I'm completely garden illiterate (hehe) but I'm trying to learn from my boyfriend's Mom who love gardening! I'd love to try to have beautiful tulips in front of my home in the future :)

Great photos!

Tricia said...

Those are definitely beautiful... I just love tulips! I can't wait till they bloom around here, I want to take the boys and try to get some good photos!

Have a wonderful weekend!


Natalie said...

GORGEOUS! I love the one little yellow tulip in the middle of all the pinks.

Paula (SweetPea) said...

since I know hitting reply to your email won't make it to you. I will answer you here. yes, there was an update 4 sent on Wednesday to your work and home from hotmail. I just sent update 5 from both hotmail and gmail. Try adding this to your home email:
chic4him (at) gmail (dot) com. at for @ and dot for .

See if you don't have some emails from chic4him in your junk. Actually, if you find update 5 just scroll down and you'll find update 4 attached in the same email.

Why does technology have to be so persnickity?

Yes, I would've gasped at I seen that large field with the one. I'd still be standing there in awe.

Just a little something from Judy said...

You captured the exquisite beauty of these tulips perfectly with your photography. God is a Master Artist, creating the colors, shades and markings of these beautiful flowers. It brings joy to my heart when I look at these pictures.

Tracy... those pictures are wonderful! I love this time of year too!


Debra said...


Those tulips are just beautiful! Happy Friday to you! Blessings!

Edie said...

Beautiful tulips Tracy!

I'm embarassed to say that these reminded me of an "I Love Lucy" episode where Lucy and Ethel entered a tulip competition. In the end they both had wax tulips that melted in the sun.

We have had a beautiful week in the 80s. I have been loving it!

Melanie said...


These are just gorgeous... especially that last picture!

We've been out of town all week and just returned home earlier this evening. What a wonderful welcome home I received by way of the package you sent! I just love every single item. Thank you so very much!!

Love you!

Sheryl said...

Tracy, thank you for visiting my blog today! I love the pictures of your tulips. Our bulbs are starting to bloom as well, and I always love the first colors of spring.


Rebecca said...

Love the tulips. Thanks for stopping by my blog today.

I am forever HIS,

Cora said...

Are you sure you're not in Holland? That's what these photos remind me of.

Yolanda said...

The very first word in my mind was:


And I loved in the first photo amidst the coral colored was the lone yellow, in the ceter, perhaps looking like it is propping up another tulip. Isn't God like that? Propping us up?


Julie said...

Wow, beautiful pictures, Tracy...

Hope you are doing well.


Becky said...

Lovely photos...I just love when bulbs start coming up. It's truly spring! Yay!

Shabby Olde Potting Shed said...

Flowers are some of my favorite subjects too Tracy!
I totally love those white tulips with the red on them. Very beautiful!

Have a wonderful WEEKEND!

Joyful said...

Absolutely beautiful Tracy! Your pics have lifted my heart.

Thank you!
PS. Still cold up here in Canada.

DeeDee said...

those are beautiful. I have only planted tulips once - and did not have good success... probably bad soil... lol
Have a great weekend!
Sweet Blessings
