orange tulips open

As tulips bloom, they open further and further.  Eventually they loose their “classic” tulip shape and become larger and flatter.  I love the way you can see all the detail in their petals, stamens, etc.  Mulit-hued tulips like these are especiallly beautiful when fully open, since you can see the color variations on the edges of the petals so much better.

Past their prime?  I think not!

Perhaps this IS their prime…

What do you think?



  1. I’m with you–I like them with their beauty fully exposed. I consider them past their prime only when the edges start to turn brown.

    • Hi Mike,

      I like your wording: “with their beauty fully exposed.”

      That’s a lovely way to look at it. 🙂

      PS Or I guess one could say “perfectly exposed.” You know, as opposed to over- or under-posed… 😉

  2. Even though one can be past one’s prime, one can be beautiful, isn’t it? Lovely shot

    • Taphian,

      I wholeheartedly agree! 🙂

      Thanks you,
