It is, however, too soon to plant gardens and pots. Evenings can get down to freezing, and it's only been a little over a week since our last snowstorm. (But poor northern Minnesota had a snowstorm just yesterday - we just got rain - so I do know it could be worse.)
But the coming of flower season has me longing for colorful blooms, so I bought myself a calla lily after work on Friday. They are so pretty and soft. I had a black and white photo challenge coming up, and I thought that this lily, with its delicate stripes of color with lovely waves in the petals, might make a pretty black and white image.
I was ever so delighted in my results. We had just enough sun that I was able to photograph in natural light, and I played with an 85mm and 105 mm lens. Both gave me just beautiful results.
I am ever so excited for summer!
