I have a "thing" for orange tulips. Especially masses of big ones crammed in clay pots like British garden queen Carol Kline pots them up. Naturally I never got around to planting any last fall so I've settled for some from the farm stand
I was going to put them on my table in a big white pitcher but my mantle was looking a little bare. It is a narrow mantle, too skinny for my pitcher so I took my old bottles out and put one tulip in each.
BTW - I think tulips are the hardest flower to paint. I may have a go later this week at painting some just for the challenge of it.
