OK - here's another view of the tulip taken two days later - sun is different and provides the glow to the flower that is hard to not be surprised at!
Sometimes things are really simple - the beauty just stares back at you until you have to take it's picture. Here I was, sitting on the bench on the front porch with my two dogs Murphy and Fenway enjoying a glass of wine and this scene just kept talking to me. I finally wised up and got the camera. Jeez I am dense sometimes!
