How I Love Flowers!

This week's Shoot and Edit theme is FLOWERS.  I love flowers!  Fresh cut, potted, growing wild, or ones that I have planted.  I love them all!  Since spring has just arrived and we're a little short on flowers around here, I bought myself a bouquet of pretty flowers last week just in time for this week's theme.  Although during my run on Friday, I saw some crocus growing in someone's yard.  If I had my camera with me, I would have stopped to photograph them.  But it is a little (okay, a lot!) hard to run with a camera around your neck.  :)

Here are my SOOC shots this week ...
Flowers SOOC4

Flowers SOOC3

Flowers SOOC2

Flowers SOOC-1
I love the fact that I got a little sun flare in there!

Tulips SOOC
These are tulips that are sprouting at my kids' school.  They planted them a couple years ago and enjoy seeing them every spring.  Nick thinks he knows which one is his.  :)  Out of the 300 or so that are there.  Silly boy.


Flowers SOOC5
Last, here is the closest thing I have to a spring flower.  A dandelion daffodil (I just realized I called this a dandelion!  Oops!) bud I discovered in my yard yesterday.  Not quite there, but close, which is promising.


Head over to Jill's and link up with your SOOC flower photos.  Can't wait to see them!
See you back here on Thursday with my edits.

How lucky were you to get such a gorgeous sun flare with that shot. That looks like it was a nice mix of colours and textures in that bunch of flowers.
