Personal commitments and the polar vortex have conspired to keep me busy these past few weeks so I’m showing more tulips all week.   No flowers were harmed in the making of these photographs.

We have about 2 feet of snow on the ground and we’re a long way from seeing tulips in the garden so I thought someone would appreciate a little color in their day.

A few years ago I planted a Ninebark shrub to help break up an uninteresting back wall of our house.  It was only about 14 inches tall when I planted it but it’s well over 6 feet tall now.  In the spring, clusters of tiny flowers appear all over it for a short time.  I had an opportunity to get some shots with the macro lens the other day.  The entire flower cluster is no bigger than an inch to and inch and a quarter.  By the time you read this they will probably be all gone.
