We seem to be on a similar theme today, Annette, although you have captured your's at a more sensible time of dayWinkWink.
Beautifully toned and marked tulips with frilly petal tips, and with the rain drops adding that extra dimension and interest.
And the window here today had torn a few of our older tulips to bits.

A delicious tulip about to loose that petal - the rain is playing havoc with our flowers too.
You certainly know how to pick a lens.

A stunner! Fingers crossed my Tulips here are ok as they aren't quite a far into flowering mode! Such a ghastly day's weather, I didn't venture out to see.

A beautiful tulip with the frayed top edge.....and the color as well. I do love seeing flowers as they start to "go". This is a lovely photo, and the solid green background makes it all "snap".

Lovely crisp detail and superb dof. That particular Tammy lens works a treat. Our tulips have been flattened by strong wind and rainSad
