I take it back

about the tulips. Yesterday, I was sitting in the once in a life time May Bank Holiday sunshine and they looked ok. Especially back lit, they glowed and then it didn’t seem to matter that they weren’t individually great it was their very discordant, mixed up jumbledness that worked. This is Angelique – still not mad on it but it does take a good photo. Perhaps this is why it’s so popular – you see it in the catalogues and it looks amazing but then in the garden it’s not all that. They say it’s the same about some models – very ordinary in real life but beautiful caught on camera.
