This is some odd breed of 
furry tulip
it reminds me of 
Little Shop of Horror's
Audrey!

I Googled 'furry tulips'
and
learned they are actually
called
Wooly Tulips!

  2. Now this is just too spooky. On Saturday after my SlowArt walk, I spent about a half an hour taking photos of some gorgeous 'frizzy' red tulips downtown. I'll send you a copy. I love the colors and detail in yours.

  5. Tulips are my FAVE flower, but never seen one like this before! Mine about to open up in my garden, and I'm looking forward to seeing loads of them in Amsterdam on the weekend, if I get there with this Ash problem!!!

  9. I think I'll stick with my Queen Of The Nights. This thing is creepy. It's like an old Auntie wanting to pinch your cheek.

    PS--my Tell Me A Story thing is up. ;-)

  11. This is an unusual one. It was years before I discovered that tulips come in so many forms.

  14. Beautiful image, Daryl - and (for once) «Louis» will refrain from making any smart-alec comment about the puns the name could produce. He'll just shut up and enjoy the photo!

  15. I gave my mom a tulip like this one for Easter. A beauty and a half. Your shot is downright glamorous.

  16. Spectacular picture! The detail is incredible! I have a single black (very very dark purple) wooly tulip blooming now. Only one...

  17. Well, I'll be! I've never seen anything like this. Reminds me of an article in a recent Nat'l Geographic about meat-eating plants...yikes.

    At first I thought it might some kind of Florida conch!

  18. What a magnificent shot they make for! Wooly tulips. Odd name for such beauty.

  20. Feeeeed meeeeee. That tulip is remniscent of the Little Shop of Horrors but it's also gorgeous and unique.

  21. I saw something that looked remarkably like that on the beach the other day. It was not a tulip.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Funny. I was just thinking of that show only a couple of days ago. And hearing the voice of Levi Stubbs going "Feed Me!"

    This almost looks like paper mache.

  23. Oh dear. Well, as long as you didn't google "wooly two lips" all should be good, because unfortunately that would have been another story altogether.

    Gorgeous picture.

  24. Well, it's beautiful in it's own flowery way. They're an old variety - I think I remember seeing them in old Dutch paintings....I could be mistaken, but they ARE loverly!

  25. If you googled "furry tulips", I can only imagine what you came up with aside from flowers. As a matter of fact, I'm off to google it right now!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Well, THAT was disappointing. All I came up with were photos of tulips. Well, OK, there was that one roller derby queen, but she was hardly worth the effort.

  27. I stumbled upon some of these in the Tulip Library down by the Tidal Basin; very exotic looking!

    ReplyDelete
  28. haha! Audrey is a better name than Wooly if you want my opinion.

  29. It does have a toothy look about it. Never thought I'd see a ferocious tulip, but you surely found one.

  30. I have never seen a wooly tulip ~ I prefer your name - furry tulip. I can't grow tulips here. Some critter eats the tulips bulbs every time. I can grow daffodils though. Love the colors of this wooly tulip!

  31. I LOVE these - wish I had some to plant! Awesome image, as always, my friend.
