The Eye of a Tulip

The Eye of a Tulip

Sometimes what’s on the inside is even more glorious than the out.

As with this tulip that I photographed as the sun was shining through it.

Making the petals almost seem transparent.

The anthers on the stamen are ripe with pollen waiting for the bees to alight and spread the yellow gold dust.

Reminding me of a Georgia O’Keeffe painting with all its folds and subtle changes of colours.

From pinks fading into creams and pastel yellows from the pollen on the petals.

The eye of the tulip presents itself to the world.

When you take a flower in your hand and really look at it, it’s your world for the moment. I want to give that world to someone else. – Georgia O’Keeffe

  1. Two lovely stories. A lovely time reading overall. Interesting about the adobe houses and insulation.

    Loved the Tulip petals and yes, very much like an O’Keeffe painting – so delicate.
