Award Shortlist   


Firstly, please forgive the many just clicks I have had to leave recently. A problem with the Internet is making it hard to keep up to date with the site.

"Prized" is simply a close-up of another Tulip I had indoors, the image saved onto the EHD and now rediscovered thanks to the snow and being stuck indoors! Having said that, the white stuff is leaving rapidly much to my relief.

Tulipa form a genus of around 100 species of hardy bulbs and have been popular throughout Europe for over 300 years. Brought originally from Turkey where they had already been long-prized, many were already hybrids, something at first not fully realised by botanists at the time in Europe.

The original species form of Tulips range from Europe to the Himalayas, particularly the Middle East and are themselves very beautiful.

I received my Nikon1 J2 Xmas draw prize on Friday, I ordered a memory card immediately which came today, I will be getting used to it before I upload any shots from it.

Good to know the snow is making an exit, Ann. Terrible to hear about what Ross's doctor is like, though! Bah. He should be reported to the BMA. I gotta say it feels like my situation is taking a long time to sort out, though. So far it's been 3 months and no one is the wiser.

GORgeous macro you've got here, by the way! So close!! Such lovely rich colour too Smile
