Flowers, flowers everywhere

If we could the miracle of a single flower clearly, our whole life would change.
 - Buddha

I may not be Buddhist, but I think that guy was onto something when he spoke of the miracle of a flower. Just imagine how, against all odds, a single seed can become something so beautiful. Kind of like humans, eh? Ok, so no spiritual or philosophical discussions today. Let's get started, shall we? 

On Tuesday I promised some Fairhope flora to feast your eyes upon {aaaahhh, alliteration!}, and so I will deliver. When we visited the city for the Arts Festival, I was elated to find flowers everywhere. It should be no secret by now that I love nature photography above all other types so I was beside myself the entire time.

I took around, oh, 40 pictures of just flowers, but I tried to limit this post to only a few. I am fully aware that everyone doesn't obsess over flowers like I do.

I realize that this photo isn't the greatest, but I included it in this post because it will serve as a reminder to me of things that I need to work on, so thanks in advance for keeping your negative judgments to yourself.

The colors of these tulips were so vibrant I couldn't help but shoot them over and over and over again.

The colors were so bright that it looks fake, but I didn't even boost the saturation in these photos. Incredible, right?

Yeah, I could shoot these pretty little things all day long.

Keeping on coming, Spring. I am ready and armed with my trusty camera.
