Orange Tulips

All of these photos were taken within a
half an hour of each other as night gave
way to the daylight.

I found these at our local grocery
store and took them to sit on the
piano at church yesterday.

I just had to bring them on home
rather than have them sit and be
lonely this week.

Aren't they just the most perfect shade
of orange? I love them against that
special shade of blue that you can only
find at sunrise or sunset.

Timing can matter in photography.
Linking up to Mary's Mosaic Monday
and Sally's Smiling Blog for Blue Monday.

A treat for you...
Stop by this blog to see some
of my favorite young people
enjoying Spring. Lindsay is so
very good with the camera!

Stunning tulips, Becky! I don't think that I have ever seen them in such a vivid shade of orange. As we all know, orange is the happiest color.

Hi Becky, thank you for dropping by my blog. I have popped over to you now. What wonderful photographs of the tulips, a very vibrant colour. Also your candles sound and I can almost smell them, great, shame the postage would be too much to order some!!

Phil,my radio ham hubby has a blog dedicated mainly to his hobby:- or the link can be found on my blog list on the right of my blog.

I am going back to see more on your blogs and will become a follower!! Have a good day, Jackie in UK.

How nice to share with the church folks and then be able to enjoy at home. Love the blue background. Happy Blue Monday.

I guess you just answered the question I put out on my blog yesterday about what color/type tulips you like best:) I agree the color is wonderful. Have a good week.

They are a lovely shade of orange, with a copper-y cast. Nice use of light and sky, too.

I love orange and I love tulips :D I'm so glad you brought them home so they wouldn't be all lonely at church during the week. The mosaic with the blue background of the sky is stunning. Happy Blue Monday~

They are sooo pretty! I was thinking about stopping at the store and picking up a lil bouquet to perk up my bedroom :)

Vickie said...

Orange is perfect, Becky!!! They are gorgeous and I love the mosaic. I still haven't learned how to do that yet. I MUST learn!

Cass @ That Old House said...

Oh I love those orange tulips, especially against the brilliant blue background; perfect together!

If your tulips start to droop, drop a few pennies into the vase; they'll perk right up.
