Mothers Day flowers – Red Tulips

Every year my daughters buy me flowers for Mother’s Day, but the last few years they have made sure they have been quite photogenic ones. They are not fancy or expensive, but the fact that they think about what I might also like to photograph is especially nice. I also had a little help in…
