Open Tulip Bloom

Would you believe that this is a tulip? We're so used to seeing its more common cup-shaped appearance that it's surprising to see its open bloom form. At this stage in the bloom cycle, tulips can look more like peonies (one of my favorite flowers) than its familiar tulip bud beginnings. Stay tuned for more posts in the coming days featuring other open tulip blooms growing at the Netherlands Carillon. I have lots more photographs of gorgeous blossoms to share.
