Excellent shot, well taken. The colour is enhanced by the purple edge to the petals.

Unusual colouring to this one Tony....looks like little daubs of paint around the edges.
A beautiful shot.
Hope the golf goes well for you & you don't ache too much afterwards.

HI Tony, we are getting some tulips here, but none as pretty as this one is-- as to the golf, I wish you the best of luck-- I would probably score 250-300 to win the LOL prize--

Splendid tulip capture!
