Thank God it is Friday!

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!

Haha, that Betty can be an influence, can't she? LOL

Photo ops can come from the strangest places and no one would ever guess. Love your parking lot flowers!
