SPRING TULIP MANIA 2018

May 27, 2018  •  3 Comments

As I mentioned last week, I went quite crazy when the tulips at a local farm were ready to pick, coming home on three separate occasions with a bucket full of flowers.

_DSC0132 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  ......

_DSC0002 _DSC0002 Asparagus are in season and I thought the green stems would make an interesting arrangement with these purple and pink tulips ..... _DSC0002 _DSC0002 _DSC0002 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. _DSC0002 _DSC0002 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.

Beautiful photography, Henrie! You gave me a better show of spring than we had here in the Midwestern US. We went from a very cool spring, right into a hot summer!

My blog is about my photography and my life in the French countryside, near Paris.

I create images that are greatly influenced by art, both past and present, that you can buy in the shop.
