‘Black’ Tulip Revisited…

None of these tulips came up this year…so I’ve revisited last year’s pictures.

Bit of saturation…
…bit of tinting…
…bit of focal black and white…an improvement on nature, if such a thing is possible.

Lovely Tulips

My kind friend Fiona gave me these beautiful tulips on Saturday. We think that they must have been treated with some sort of virus to give them the crinkly petals.

Nice Safe Flowers

Here is the last, brave magnolia flower. I think it almost looks like a water lily.

I think there’s enough of a goth about me (that would be YOU Ms.Bones) to be slightly fixated on black flowers. There are no truely black flowers – this tulip is really a lovely rich purple, but I love the idea of a black orchid. Forget climbing the glass mountian, go find me a bouquet of black flowers….now there’s an idea for a painting all you artist types 8-).
