Ok, so I didn't go out to a garden 
to find these lovely tulips.
 My husband bought me tulips
in a glass jar for Valentine's Day.
 
You keep the water level just
below the bulbs so that the 
roots stay hydrated.
They have lasted over a week
and have been lovely to 
watch them grow and grow!

springtime in a jar
bathed in the afternoon sun
pink tulips blossom

Out at the MFAH Bayou Bend Gardens.
Lovely pink flowers of all types
all around the gardens.

At the Edith L. Moore Nature Sanctuary
yesterday with my fellow Miksangers.
The sun decided to play hide
and seek, mostly hide!

caught between water and stone

 A piece from my Zen Moments portfolio -
a departure from the Garden photos!

Went out to pack the recyclables
into my car to take down to the Recycle Center
which is on the way to my yoga class.
Stepped outside into a wonderland
of dense fog hiding the trees
and the street.
Lovely!

immersing the trees
until the glowing sunrise
a dense morning fog

 A piece from my Zen Moments portfolio, In The Garden series.

Feeling like a bit of color today,
it has been overcast and drab here
so often this Winter!

And trying out something new
with the "framing" of the pictures.
Ana at KCAM suggested that
I use more larger mats with my prints,
so I am going to experiment
a bit with them here in my posts
where the cost is free!
