Stranger in our Midst

I wanted to show you this little beauty. I have only one. Like the lavender primrose I don't know where this came from. It is not in a place I would plant and I wouldn't plant a lone bulb. They don't even sell them that way. Nonetheless, I have marveled over its beauty and uniqueness amongst my red tulips. Maybe it will grow again next year. The real treasure of the fleeting time of flowers is to enjoy the wonder of the moment. It means appreciating here and now. Oh, I can try to capture things with the camera or some art, but there are always limitations. I think this must be another bulb the garden fairies hauled in from somewhere.

This is a "fringed tulip". Lovely.
