The blooms of spring return.
With the snows melted away, I find myself rambling around the garden in awe of the first sights of spring. It must be the re-awaking of our part of the country after a long, colorless winter that drives my desire to photograph these tulips. They are the first amazing bursts of color and form to arrive on the scene, and I find their vibrant hues and delicate petals irresistible.
Over the past three years I have shot photographic studies of spring blooms starting with tulips and daffodils. The show starts with the blossoming of the magnolias and dogwoods, and climaxes with the abundant fruit trees in our area—notably apple and cherry—and various perennials like bleeding heart.
Here’s a quick look at a few of my tulip images. Watch for a bounty of blossoms as the rains and warm weather take over, and come back soon to see more spring blooms.
