Today's Flowers #39

My friend Luiz from Brazil does the Today's Flowers Meme, check it out. Come and join with your flower photos. Sunday at 7 GMT is the post time.

Today I thought I would show the red tulip in my front porch bed. I thought it has a great inside. This shot focuses on the inside of the tulip. You can enlarge it for a better view.
This shot focuses on the outside of the tulip.
You can see a lot of great flowers at this meme.

I love this kind of tulips, I have some just like them in my yard but they're already finished blooming. The black, yellow and red makes such a striking color combination. Very pretty photos!

I like taking pics of the inside of tulips, too. I didn't get mine posted this year, but I DID take pictures. Maybe I'll fit them in somewhere...hmmmmmm

I really like red tulips that bloom early in the season, They seem to last longer than tulips that bloom later on. ;-)
