Five separate arrangements from two plants....a good excercise.....or at least one I enjoyed.

Beautiful. That Tamron really delivers doesn't it.
It sure does, Tom.

Very nice Harry love the work especially #1
Thanks, Tony. I'm getting fonder each time I try it...at shoting flowere using a wide angle lens, close-up. It gives an interesting perspective that is not so common.

The flowers, esp the tulips, look great !!
They are very healthy, Kelvin. They are being transplanted into my garden this weekend.

Beautiful shots, Harry! #1 is my fav!
Thanks, Dossy. I like it as well...though the wide-anle approach worked well on thses.
