The parrot tulips Mary brought me last Friday are just gorgeous today. They're opening more and more, leaning and swaying with the slightest provocation as you walk by them. The sunlight coming through the windows behind them renders the paler orange blooms almost transparent, and the centers of the red ones are turning a deep blue. I just had to do a quick photoshoot this morning to capture them at this phase. Enjoy! All photos clickable to enlarge. Click the "Read More" jump to see five more photos.
Dusty Miller, a curly Spider plant and a young Bamboo plant all act as great foils to the elegant blooms of the parrot tulips.
