One Hour Later

This was the same tulip one hour later once the heat had reached it, it's in the bed on the NW of the house by the back door so gets no real sun it closed up again. Just fascinating watching their comings and goings depending on conditions.

Thats beautiful. Its amazing to watch it open with the sun shines and close when the sun goes in, my one does the same. I hope they last for awhile. I always find the really beautiful flowers have a short life.

What a difference an hour makes (let alone a day) when we've got beautiful weather like this. Just shows how rapid growth is with the heat.

Funny how peoples tastes change over the years. I was never big into tulips. I always thought their flowering period was way too short. But not any more. I love them all. And the more vivid, the better. Thats' a gorgeous one.

I was keeping an eye on one today, as the sun came onto it, if you waited I reckoned you could see it open.

Was worth the hour wait to see that!
