June 17 — And now for something completely different
I shot these photos in my kitchen, not the gardens. My husband gave me tulips for my birthday last week, and my daughter got a bouquet for high school graduation. I meant to shoot the flowers sooner but didn’t get around to it till yesterday. There’s still a lot of beauty in these fading flowers. But note the tulip only has one petal left. The top flower is a carnation.
The flowers are on the kitchen table catching afternoon light. I put the shutter o na timer and stood behind the blooms with a length of black velvet fabric to disguise the cluttered background.
