les tulipes | from Bulb to Bloom

"Anne sighed, dragging her eyes from the witcheries of the spring world, the beckoning day of breeze and blue, and the green things upspringing in the garden."
-Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery

This Spring I've been enjoying a new leisurely habit of adventuring out my front porch to capture the resurrection of bulb to bloom around our home. Every day I ramble about at different times to see how the world is growing and how light and water changes an image. Light is such a fascinating study! Every time I look through the lens, I marvel all over again at the magic of light, and especially the way drops of water cling so perfectly to a petal.

May I present to you, our tulips...

cloudy afternoon


purple twilight


morning sun


I am so captivated by how twilight kisses everything with an ethereal glow - it feels moody and romantic and secret.


snow



golden sunset











Sigh.
Does that make you as happy as it makes me?
I love this world of color and scent and soft.
