I’m doing the nature challenge on Facebook, and thought I’d echo it here. The Oldest Keeper was the first and here’s the second.

Evil Tulips from the Laboratory…

Backlit glowing tulips

Tulips are widely grown in Washington as a commercial crop. Skagit, WA has an annual Tulip Festival in the spring where you can go see enormous fields of tulips in a wide range of shades and patterns. You can order bulbs from at least hundreds of varieties. Many people just grow their own in the garden or take advantage of volunteers.

Check out Roozengaarde or the Skagit Tulip Festival if you’re interested.

Of course, my “stained glass” period is pretty much ongoing. I have several of these taken annually.

One of my first photographic loves is macro and near-macro images of flowers. This is from Sara’s Iris garden here in Seattle. Taken this spring on a mostly cloudy day.
