We planted a bunch a couple of years back, and now you get a chance to look at a few every spring if you want. These two are white and violet with slinky stems.

Each tulip variation has its own name but unlike rose names I don’t find them memorable.

My flower-picture taking has become more and more selective. With a few rare exceptions, I’m only pulling the camera out of its bag for blossoms that are partially or wholly in direct sunlight.

Well, you'll have to plant some night-blooming flowers so you can exercise your flash skills.
