Just wanted to give you a follow-up image of my tulips, to show how much they have opened! I love the hidden surprise of the rich darknes at the base of each petal as it opens, in contrast to the yellow-orange stamen with its delicate pollen. Wow, I know way more about tulips than I rightly should.... Anyway, this image was taken about 5 days after the previous. There have already been a couple of casualties, with petals raining down on my table, leaving a bald stem behind. Cheers to the survivors!
