Warning: Trivial Photos!
As simple as it might seem - and my wife likes to call those shots "trivial", as in "seen a thousand times" - but I could not refuse from shooting, processing and posting these lovely black, red&gold flowers.

I simply can't get enough of those :roll:
Hope you enjoy them as I do...

Bouquets! I love these tulips..and you know what I really love? Tiger lilies, and star lilies..lets just make this a great thread..I am going to be able to go out this weekend...it is not tulip time here..but will see what I can come up with for our proverbial garden gate thread...I can not wait to see the blooms.
Thomas, I never get tired of the intricacies of these flowers..am so glad you got these shots...Alex where are yours...beautiful patterns, gorgeous color, and just the right reflected light. Perfect petals.

love,
p.

Had to smile here for a reason that might not be that obvious to members from other countries ...

Apart from that, I like picture 1 and 2 the best. The third one is "just" a plant-like palette of colors to me and could be anything, not necessarily a tulip.

regards,
HTG

You must be referring to the colors of the German flag, HTG :wink:
