"feathered.tulip"

Somehow the fragmented tulip leaves suggest feathered wings and tails to me.

Generated from manipulation of clones of "internet for sale" bulb snapshot (catalog image with appeal to avid Zone 7 gardener, as I am when I can.:



For me seeing spring bulbs emerging feels like I felt when I was a seven year old middle class kid on Christmas morning. Life is good. My favorite flowers are species crocus and daffodils. Daffodils get stronger every year.
