I've got a few like that, not tulips but peonies. They still look good, just like yours.

Still lots of wonderful colour in your dying tulip.
I'll be delighted if I can dance when I'm that comparative age.

It looks like someone (er...or someTHING) running towards you and veering to their left Grin

Here's one of those moments where a flower in its final times looks so very fetching. Glad you took the shot, Barbs. Even gladder you had the surprise to enjoy in the first place Smile
