It really is beautiful this tulip and its color. I too like the texture on its silky petals.

Splendid. This is one of my favorite colors of tulips, there is an iridescence that is amazing - salmon and lavender!

That is Princess Irene, isn't it? I just bought some of those, partly because they are so beautiful, and partly to commemorate my lovely Renie, who we called The Princess.

I have literally just put a blog up about that. What a coincidence! :)

wow -- it looks like it is fluid!
The color swirl reminds me of those iridescent fingernail polishes I wore when I was a kid.

Yes, Sue, this is one of those nature art pieces and your photos shows it brilliantly!
Thank you for your wishes, we will fly on Wednesday.
I could be happy to get you with us there. We wil be 4 days in Beijing, 2 in Xian,2 in Guilin,2 in Hangzhou and the last four days in Shanghai.
I got a flu just now, but hopefully it will not trouble too much during a journey.

I wish you all the best!
