Well, this was very hard for me since all the flowers are beautiful! With all my computer problems I had very little time to study the photos. But, my eye kept coming back to Tanya's light pink tulip. Congratulations Tanya.

I know I am to pick a winner by noon today. I came home from out of town last night and my desktop won't turn on, laptop can't get a connection to the wireless modem. I was told we had a terrible lightening storm. I think my computer and modem are fried. I'm writing this from church and don't know when I'll be able to get back to this. I will try to come back to church later today and use their wireless connection. Sorry
Now that most of us have the start of summer weather and flowers blooming, I thought I'd pick a subject that just about everyone should be able to fine. Photograph flowers in a creative way. Could be macro, wild or cut, outside or inside, use your imagination. Winner will be picked Noon, Sunday June 3rd.
A few old pictures of mine as an examples.

Can someone tell me what this prairie flower is? I am assuming it is a prairie flower, cause that is where it was.

Judy, It's a Spiderwort. They are everywhere. I have them going all over my yard. I love that little wildflower.

Congratulations, Tanya. That is a beautiful tulip. It would have been my choice, too.

oh wow! I really wasn't expecting to win, thank you so much!

I'm actually sad that the tulips are all gone - they are BEAUTIFUL flowers to photograph. I was also blessed that we have a three week "tulip festival" with tons of beautiful flowers :D
