Not only do I love this photo, but it seems you have so many images from your travels! I love hearing about them - and when I go exploring the other side of the country, I know who to consult with ;)
Thanks for sharing to {crimson}!

It's amazing how similar the claret cups have such a similar look to the open tulips I photographed, since they come from opposite biomes. Blessings!
