i heart ranunculus

One of the few (very few) upsides of having your home on the market is that you have an excuse to buy yourself fresh flowers. I bought a few bunches of bright yellow tulips and gorgeous orange roses on Monday and promised myself that I would lay off on flower purchases until they were gone. Unfortunately, that promise was forgotten tonight when spotted some ranunculus at Costco. I am a total sucker for those flowers and I rarely see them in the grocery store. I had to buy them. They are out of season for the wedding, so I better enjoy them while I can!

Here are some photos I took of the ranunculus and roses together. I have been staring at them all night.

You can see our cute little Roomba slaving away in the back :)




All my photos were pretty crappy and it got me thinking about taking a photography class. Let me know if you have any tips for photographing flowers- I could use them!

  1. I adore ranunculus. I wish I could have them at my wedding but they are out of season. I might have to get some at Costco.

  2. The 4th picture down is really pretty. I google noted it. Did you use the macro function on your camera?

  3. No, I was just playing with the flash! I will have to do some research on the macro function. Part of my problem is that I really don't understand my camera ;)
