Tulips from my garden

Much to my delight, since tulips are my favourite flowers, I recently noticed some growing in our little front garden, to the side and half hidden by the rubbish bin.

It took a while for the buds to open even though tulips are blooming away in other gardens in our neighbourhood, but when our tulips finally did open they started out yellow and quickly developed crimson streaking. Today I cut them and brought them into the house because I never really see them outside because of where they were growing and this way I can enjoy them all day, if only for a few days.

Within half an hour of bringing them in the blooms had opened wide and flat.
