I saw tulips peeking out the other day. Spring is officially here today, even though New England still has snow on the ground from our latest storm. Every year at this time, I clip a few twigs from the red leaf plum tree out front, followed by forsythia, and place them in water to force the blooms. It is my own farewell to winter. Here is a little forced red leaf plum photo shoot. The photos are taken with my iphone and a Sigma Merrill DP-3. I also took photos with a Diana/120 film, but unfortunately they aren’t developed yet. I’ll add them to to this post at a later time.
