Tulip magic

By {screen_name}

"I perhaps owe having become a painter to flowers.

-Claude Monet

 

 

These tulips were given to me a few years ago and they were red. Every year they have changed colors. I know there is a scientific explanation for the changing colors - cross breeding, sometimes plants will change color depending on their genes, if they have a virus, mutations or what you are watering and fertilizing them with, but to me it is MAGIC.

"Flowers havd spoken more to me than I can tell in written words. They are the hieroglyphics of angels, loved by all men for the beauty of their character, though few can decipher even fragments of their meaning."
-Lydia M. Child
