Five minutes with a mature tulip in J’s garden. This post is for the Regular Random tag (see below for more details).
Six divisions in the brown area – one for each leaf. Three pointy bits on the stamen. A perfect mandala in the centre of this vibrantly coloured flower.
One leaf that droops. The shape reminds me of wings. The yellow and tinges of red are fabulously offset by the green background.
This angle gives me a sense of the pillar-like stamen. I see strong shadows and triangular shapes too.
Sweet curves and a shadow shape on the foremost petal. Two winged petals on either side – it feels like it might take off and fly at any moment.
