Yesterday’s Tulips

227. Past Its Prime

227. Past Their Prime

No tulips outside yet. No green of any sort outside yet.

Desperation set in and I bought a bunch of grocery store tulips. Then I hated to throw them away, even when they were way past their prime.

    Sad and wonderful that life has its cycle, but oh so necessary.

    Lovely, I think the coolest thing about tulips is how they go over

    The fact that they are past their prime intensifies the color and adds texture to the petals–both of which you captured perfectly.

    The colors and the texture are lovely. Beautiful shot!
