This picture is for you, my Blogging Buddies! Happy Friday! I actually shot this in a parking lot where there was a small plot of spring blooms. Just goes to show that you can find photo ops almost anywhere.
My friend Betty John, aka "Hootnonny", made me do it. I broke down and ordered 10 Ranunculus bulbs from here: https://www.willowcreekgardens.com/index.asp?PageAction=VIEWCATS&Category=37&Page=2
I ordered two sets of the Ranunculus Rainbow Mix because besides being on sale, the price of two had the same S & H charge. I hate paying inflated shipping charges. Sometimes it is almost as much as the item you purchase.
I am a very frugal person so I had to give this purchase a lot of thought. I reasoned that I could have my own flowers to photograph and not have to pay a florist $10 a stem....yes, that is what they go for.
Betty has inspired me to really love shooting flowers. If you haven't already, you need to take a peek at her website: http://artisticexpressionsphotographync.blogspot.com/

Have a wonderful weekend, my friends!
