Blushing Beauty – Photo Wednesday

My friend Anne Popperwell is an artist whose paintings are sensuous and beautiful.

Last week, she brought me these gorgeous “Blushing Beauty” tulips, and explained that she planted the bulbs in her garden because she wanted to paint the flowers, when they bloomed.

I can see why she wanted to paint them! I have never seen a tulip of that size before. They are very large and so elegant.

For several days, Beauty resided on my table.
