Weekly Photo Challenge: From Above – turtle & tulips

On a visit to The Grove, a local nature center, in early March, I took this picture of a turtle sticking its head out of the water. A little of its shell is also visible above the water.

????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

It’s now tulip season! Tulips now dominate the flower garden landscape here in the Midwest. Following are some tulips I photographed from above, as they opened to reveal their fertile interiors.

IMAG0387I like the hazy quality of this picture.

IMAG0386The evergreen bushes contrast beautifully with the bright pink of this tulip.

????????????????????This tulip is from my yard – I planted bulbs several years ago along the fence bordering our property. I didn’t know what color they’d be – it was a total surprise!
