Some flowers just keep giving and giving.
Here’s a shot about two minutes later as the tulip just catches the setting sun.
And, another photo, a few days later. The fading bloom is still enchanting and certainly gives us a fine example of the Japanese aesthetic, wabi sabi.

They are very nice your tulips.
Have a nice day!
Thank you and enjoy your weekend. 😊
Ah yes I learned of wabi sabi from your posts – lovely.
Oo – well I like to spread the word and it’s nice to get positive feedback too. Thank you.
These tulips are beautiful in all the stages. And I loved seeing the change in appearance from youth to older age. The word fading is usually a negative word, I think, but it should not be. The tulips prove it.
Yes, I agree about how we view ‘fading’ in Western culture – we most definitely could learn a lot from other cultures that accept the inevitability of the march of time instead of denial and the resulting obsession with youth.
Fascinating images and reference to Wabi Sabi, I’ve been reading about it recently and can connect . Thanks Agnes.
I think it’s an uplifting way to view the passing of time.
