The bad news is, I dropped my digital camera and it's completely kaput. Finito. Mort. Muerto.
The good news is, Curt has one and he just gave me a lesson on how to use it. So, I get to keep on clickin' pics of my cool red tulips. Hopefully my flickr account won't explode.
I bought these tulips mail order from Breck's (direct from Holland! whatever…) I've been buying from them for a few years and I'm always pleased. These particular tulips are called Red Dynasty and Breck's advertises them as "The Biggest Red Tulip Ever!" (again, whatever…marketing). But I guess it worked, 'cuz I bought them…and I'm hooked. They ARE beautiful.
I noticed that some of them are black in the center and others are yellow. I could sit outside forever and look at them.
