MV Obsession

My obsession with Martha's Vineyard.. phototography..genealogy and life in general and this and that…

My Tulip Obsession …


I love tulips but never have I enjoyed them more than the past two weeks.  On my birthday my daughter Deb bought these ‘grow your own tulips’ for me and I set about not only watching them grow, but taking pictures of them from all sorts of angles.

Slowly they began to open…

…and the photo shoots began.

******** UPDATE *******

When cutting back the tulips this morning they had a surprise for me… nestled down amongst the leaves was this tiny squooshed bud.


I moved the leaves back a bit and look at that, another tulip and the enjoyment continues.

I'm married, I have two daughters and two grandchildren and they all love MV. Enjoy my MV blog and contact me if I can answer any questions. This blog started out as strictly about Martha's Vineyard but over the years I've branched out to include other obsessions and interests. I enjoy photography and like sharing my photos here as well. Hope you enjoy :)
