Focus on tulips!

 Yesterday, the giant crocuses were my focus of interest. And, today the tulips have begun to bloom!
I photographed one pink tulip as these are a new color for me. I've always loved red and orange, but since Shannon's favorite color is pink, I decided to plant some, and I love them!
I am always fascinated by the variety of pistil and stamen arrangements in flowers, and here is the middle of the pink tulip.
And, even closer up! Note the pollen maturing on the stamen!
I have a tiny row of Firespray tulips edging the north garden.
The Firespray tulips come in red and yellow. I find the pistil and stamen reminding me of a spider.
Here is the yellow Firespray tulip.
