Wordless Wednesday

Feb.20,2013


I recently celebrated a birthday and a dear friend, who was out of the country at that time, dropped in to say hello.
 Along with pictures of her amazing trip to Africa, she brought me a lovely bouquet of tulips.
I dutifully cut the stems  before placing them in water, but eventually they were in full bloom. This is a close up of the inside of one of them.

Along with the pistil and stamen being clearly visible, I loved the sun ray effect and the  beautiful colors.

    1. Thanks, Judy! I'm guessing it's the "Bacon" part of my name. My maiden name was "Kelly". That is a name, not something that you eat for breakfast!!LOL

    1. I never thought about that, but you are absolutely right. The center of the tulip looks very much like a kaleidoscope. Thanks for the comment.
