As delicate as a flower!

As trite as it sounds, I thought of a flower to describe something that is delicate. Although tulips look fragile, they can be grown with a minimum of fuss. Just plant tulip bulbs in the fall and forget about them. They will spring up in April and put on a brilliant show. Now that’s being bold yet delicate!

      Thank you. I’m glad you liked it. It was an experiment to let natural light stream in like polka dots on tulip petals.

      Thanks, Ian. I agree with you that the black background showcases the flower in an attractive way.
