Tulip

Tulips are single flowers and have six petals. Flower variations include lily-flowering types, double flowers, fringed petals and ruffly parrot varieties. Colors include white, yellow, pink, peach, orange, red, lavender, purple and bi-colors. Vase life is up to seven days.

Inspired by a friend and her still life photography I decided to try my hand at photographing a flower. Tulips are beautiful flowers, I hope i've done this one justice (must get out and buy those desk lamps i've been meaning to buy).
