Looks like you and I have the same flowers blooming! LOL! Exquisite capture Debbie, very well done! #868061

Are yours in your garden? Mine came from King Soopers and when they are finished blooming I will save the bulbs and plant them in the fall. We are weeks away from even the early bloomng bulbs, but it'll happen one of these days. I'm anxious to see what comes up as we planted a whole bunch of new bulbs this year. #5583767

Debbie, is this in natural lighting? I like how you captured just a peek of the second flower. Good job! #5583840

Candice L. Carter 3/3/2008 5:48:17 AM

Yes, mine are in the garden. I hope the bulbs save good for you and I can't wait to see what you come up with next. Again, beautiful job! #5585762

I really like the glimpse of the bg flower. #5588636

Debbie E. Payne 3/3/2008 6:13:55 PM

I was going for the interest in both diagonal corners. This one is more "orderly" than the other one. I kind of like the craziness of the whole group. I was a little concerne because the bg flower looks a lot yellower.

Thank you for your comments, Brian. #5588701

Thank you Debby and Sam. This was my favorite one last month. I haven't looked at all the others yet. Maybe I'll do that after my husband conks out -- he had foot surgery not long ago and he tires easily and goes to bed early. #5820722

Congratulations Debbie on a wonderful shot. I immediatly thought this was a very good image but when I noticed the second background flower I realized that it is an OUTSTANDING image. #5838553

Congrulations on your Finalist Debbie,
I don't have a garden really, we have been in a draught over here for the last 10 or 11 years now, the pop up sprinklers have rusted! Love the title.~Pat #5869480
