Macro Flowers Saturday: Tulip







I have joined this meme for a while now, and I am loving it. First I love flowers. Second, the badge for this meme is the North Borneo Orchid.

Join Macro Flowers Saturday, a photo meme for macro photos and close-ups of flowers, garden flowers, wildflowers, blossoms, flowers with insects and butterflies (no insects without flowers), flowers with raindrops and whatever beautiful plants, plant seeds or berries you have, in close-up.

First time visitors, please read the rules. They are simple but I do ask that you, please, use a MFS badge or link back to MFS in some way. Thank you.

At the Winter Gardens in the Auckland Domain, you see flowers at all season. Here tulips have opened up, not the usual bud that you get from the florist shop.

I have never seen a tulip in this color, it is so deep and rich. Beautiful photos Ann.

hi Ann! I saw that type of tulips still in the bud in Spring at the Botanic Gardens. And my camera had ran out of battery... :(( Never had the chance to go back to see them in full bloom. They are really lovely! Thanks for sharing the photos.

Tulips! it has, of course, been ages since I have seen them! I love this colour, especially when you can get the sun shining through the petals!
Merry Christmas!
