Blush pink

I'm not sure if the blush on this white tulip shows. I planted it last year. I didn't expect it to grow and bloom. I do not remember the tulip on the package looking quite so pert. So much has happened since that moment when I dug out weeds and buried the tulip bulb. I've been tested to the core. This little blush and white flower reminds me that time has a habit of moving on, whatever decisions are made. I took photos of it as a way of keeping it close to me even after its short beauty has fallen away.

@Hatley Good to hear from you. We do not have our heat pump settings done right. It feels like the heat is on in this house and the temps outside reached almost 80 today. I am roasting.

That is a gorgeous tulip and I think I might just have that made into a canvas so I could look at it all year!!

@BelleStarr I wonder if photo bucket can dream up a wall for me? My walls are covered with paintings from my artistic daughter.

That is a lovely flower. Why is beauty so fleeting?

@JohnRoberts Why is beauty so fleeting? That question was asked first in Eden and here you are asking it again.

@sallypup It's just a flower blooms for just so long and an ugly weed never goes away. Metaphor.

@JohnRoberts I know. And a good metaphor and a good question. Tap roots and spreader roots. Those obnoxious weeds are quite clever.

That is a beautiful and shy tulip, I do see the blushing. She is doing her "debut", so it is understandable!

This is a lovely bloom. Taking pictures is a good idea for we never know where our steps may go.

@GardenGerty I've killed tulips before so any that came up and actually bloomed have been sweet to look at.

Yes, the blush does show in the photo. It's a very pretty tulip! It's such a delicate colour. A bunch of these would make such a pretty bridal bouquet, or an awesome arrangement for the birth of a baby.
