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.
