Morning Sun....

.....in just the right spot.........





7.30 this morning, no flash just sunlight coming through one of the kitchen windows and hitting the oranges on the sideboard, perfect shot....love it...!


A very short while later and the sun moved right onto the tulips on the dining table..





..I know, Tulips, totally out of season but I was in the supermarket yesterday and they had all their valentines flowers reduced to $5 a bunch, wouldn't you be mad if you paid $40 for roses on Monday and Wednesday they're $5...?

They're gorgeous aren't they..



Just lovely to look at..



Got to go now, off to my patchwork group...

The oranges look like a painting from an old world master! Stunning!

Margaret said...

Wow! Love the pics! I agree with Denice -- first one definitely looks like a painting. Gorgeous! And the tulips -- I loooove tulips!

Deb said...

Lizzy, you are just like my cats...following the sun around the house. They don't have a camera though. Loved this post. The tulips are gorgeous. Hugs, Deb=^..^=x5

Beautiful photos, Lizzie! I jumped over here from SugarCrafter's blog, saw your question about what shortening is. Shortening is basically hardened vegetable oil. It's spun until it fills with air, creating a butter-like consistency. You can substitute butter, suet or lard anywhere that it's called for, usually.

Absolutely stunning photography Lizzie, I'm in awe.

Oh beautiful Lizzie...what a lovely pictures...the vase with the tulips could be right from my coffeetable...i got them there too...
and i am lucky here in Holland...next month and in March i can pick them for free in the most lovely colors..even the dubbleones...there are lots of flowerfarmers here were i live and one can see for miles the lovely colored fields with tulips...they like you to pick the flowers because they only need the tulipbulbs ( if thats the name in English) and not the flowers...did i told you about the little trick to keep them up straight?..just pick a little hole with a pin just beneeth the flower in the stem..workes not always...but most of the time they stay a little more fresh too..
Weekend around the corner t.G..have a fine one...greetings ...Francien.

I was seduced by red tulips yesterday too - they're on my desk at work. I love them when they elongate and start to droop over the vase as yours have done. Beautiful photos!.

The photos are gorgeous! I love the way you captured the texture in the flower petals; particularly in the last picture.

Red tulips, my favorites. In France flowers are very expensive, they all come from Holland. I remember when i was in Holland, you could buy 3 bunches for 6 euro......
