Tulips

These small yellow tulips have been looking wonderful over the last few days, but I didn’t have a lot of success capturing their image yesterday.  I was trying with the Lensbaby Sweet35 again, and I tried various techniques, including `looking through’ but I still can’t get down low enough to frame that kind of shot.  I deleted all the multiple exposures.  Maybe yellow is as hard a colour as red to get looking right.

After lunch I finally managed to transplant all of my Cosmos plug plants into larger containers.  I think the cold frosty mornings had made me think twice about moving them into the greenhouse too soon this year, but their time has come!  I think I counted 48 white ones (they got damaged in transit) and 64 coloured ones, so their might need to be some more potting on in a few weeks time.

I read a few more page of `Girl, Woman, Other’ by Bernadine Evaristo in the afternoon, which I’m enjoying.  I love the way she writes.  I’m really not reading much fiction at the moment, so this one is a pleasure.  I also lit the fire - it had suddenly got much colder.

And what a storm last night - hail, sheet lightening, the lot!  All of it happening when we had our small group Zoom (our Only Girls Aloud Group from the camera club).
