Photo Friday 2012 ~ 13 ~

Details.  I immediately thought of taking a picture of the two tulips that came up in our yard this year.  Usually we have one red tulip, but it never came up.  Then I noticed these two coming up in the front yard and I could not for the life of me remember planting tulip bulbs.  Then I remembered that they were from my grandma's funeral last year.  They were part of a giant planter basket and they were already blooming when I planted them so I guess I forgot that they would come back every year.  So now they just make me think of her.  I miss her.  I cut them the other day and brought them into the house since it was supposed to frost and I didn't want them to die.  I have one on my desk and one on our kitchen table.  I am reminded of her all day long that way.  And they are perfect and beautiful and brighten my day, just like her.

I love this!  What a happy accident this shot was.  I put the tulip into a ray of sun coming in the window to make the yellow pop and I didn't even realize it, but the camera read the illuminated part of the flower and so the rest of the background was so underexposed that it turned black.  I love the detail of the flower parts.  

I unintentionally captured the detail of the reflection in the vase.  If you look really hard, you can probably see me.  : )

I love the little scallops on the edges of the petals.  

One more with the black background because I just love it!!

Have a great weekend!  I'm looking forward to Palm Sunday and celebrating the start of Easter week!  Check out some more great 'detail' shots by clicking below.
