Flower Dancing . . .

 
 
remember these fresh colorful tulips
from a few days ago




they are almost to their end
i emptied the water
cut the ends off the stems
mixed in a few others
and made a few more bouquets



one more



 and another



and then
 

some of them became this
 



These are the same tulips as in the first photos.. 
I took the petals and carefully inverted them.
Creates a brand new look and a crazy fun idea I saw on the blog of 
As I said initially these tulips were at their end. 
 I plan to try a fresh tulip next and
I think the leaves will curl more and
 leave a more backward curled look. 
 
Interesting to take the 
traditional tulip
and give it a new look.
 

 
 
be well my friends

Very nice indeed! Not something I would have thought of... tulips are one of my favourite flowers, but they don't seem to last very long! Cheers~

Such pretty blooms. I can't wait to see tulips in our yard again.

PS. I understand that we have questionable weather coming to your area Thursday night into Friday with freezing rain and snow. Yuck!

Thank you Lynne. for using my tip from my blog post.'I'm still thinking of Spring'. It's lovely to see how other bloggers take a tip and use it in their own style. Your tulips look lovely and will continue to give you pleasure for a while longer.

It's a shame they have to die..Max won't let me have any flowers in the house...I guess that could be a good thing...

They have always been my favourite, but what a completely different look when they're flipped out!
