SPRING TULIP MANIA 2018
And a part from enjoying the colour and Spring vibrations the tulips brought into our home, I also photographed several bouquets.
This is the window sill in my bedroom, where I decided to set up ......
I found this lovely blue jug, pichet, at Emmaus on my last prop foray there.
Asparagus are in season and I thought the green stems would make an interesting arrangement with these purple and pink tulips ..... One of the advantages of going to the PYO farm is the fantastic variety of flowers on offer.
These unusual red and white striped tulips look similar to the infamous Semper Augustus variety that both made the fortune of and ruined many tulip owners, in the 17th century Tulip Mania. All of these images* are available as prints, canvases or cards, in my Shop, together with my tulip photos from previous Spring sessions.
I had so many flowers that I made these little bouquets for three friends, a simple arrangement in a jam jar, covered with pretty magazine pages and tied with saved ribbon, of which I have a box full.
