Tangerine Dreams

I was working on yet another skiing post, when I saw this week's 52 Photos Project meme - "tangerine."  With all the flowering plants popping out here in Portland, I thought this would be an easy assignment.  The skiing post got put on hold in favor of finding a suitable photographic subject.

Well......easier said than done!  My yard is a mass of green budding leaves, pink rhododendrons, and frilly white pear blossoms.  But nothing, no nothing, came close to matching that lovely peachy-orange hue.  Fail?

Then I remembered the tulips in a vase on my table.  I'd purchased a bouquet for my Easter dinner centerpiece.  Still in good shape, there happened to be two tangerine-y colored tulips to choose from.  After much hovering, and at least a zillion shots, I produced this winner.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
