I have grown some pretty spectacular tulips in flowerpots this year. They are lasting well, with the cool temperatures we have had so far, but I notice that they are now just beginning to fade. But they are doing it beautifully!
One day later. I am on a bit of a roll now, with dying tulips. The ones in the garden are changing, slowly, each day. The petals are contracting and rolling in on themselves.
But two in water, in the kitchen, have desiccated beautifully! The first one is the same as the cerise tulips above. High winds snapped a flower head off and it has been sitting in water, on the dining table, for a couple of weeks.
This single tulip morphed into a graceful ballerina.
