Default Easter Flowers feel free to add yours

Well,
It's Easter weekend and that reminds me of flowers. Trouble is that there aren't a lot of flowers of plants in bloom up here at there moment.

If you'd like, feel free & add your own.

Here are a few images that I've been working on. All taken the with E-30 + 12-60mm sometime over the last year:

Wow! Great job, Zig. #2 is a surprise - white-on-white isn't easy.

Good morning Ted,

Much appreciate the kind words. #2 along with the Tulip are my favorites.

Good morning Gary,

Thank you and more importantly, glad you added your own.

The E-30, as you're finding out-I'm sure, is a great camera. Hope you're having fun with it.

It is, indeed, quite a piece of gear! I'm having a great time with it, Zig.

Hi Ted,

That is actually a Catawba Rhododendron which, when not modified, as I've done here, is a light pink bloom. At last count, I've got about 53 rhododendrons
planted over the 20 yrs that we've lived here. Besides Azaleas and Rhododendrons, Mountain Laurel love the acidic soil found here on the Cape.

Well I had the right family at least. That color did throw me off but I like it a lot. They do love acidic soil.
