My dad gives me tulip bulbs every fall to plant in my yard. The greens always come up, but I never get a flower. He said maybe I plant them upside down! LOL! This year I got one tulip! Horray! So this photo is dedicated to my Dad. It was dark, rainy and windy yesterday when I took this photo. I was hand holding the camera and my ISO was set very high...ISO 1000. F4 1/400. Do you think it looks too grainy?
