Blue Tulip

I have seen a variety of blue flowers but this is the first time I viewed a blue Tulip. How about you?

So many talking to me say it is a black tulip but I disagree and found the answer on the internet. . .

Q. Do black tulips really exist?

A. Yes they do, but in reality they are very dark blue.

So, I guess seeing is in the eye of the beholder.

My internet friend, Malyss, from France, gave me this and I thank her for thinking of me!

I've been raving about purple tulips all spring. But, this blue one tops those! Gorgeous!

Here, we call those very dark blue tulips "black tulips", because in our history, there 's a legend of a knight who saved the poor people by fighting against rich and bad people, and let such a tulip to sign when he left the place of the fight..But I never saw such a flower in real life!

I hope the shop where you put your camera will be able to find a solution.
Have a good week-end!

I've seen the pale blue ones. This one must be Midnight Blue. I've never seen one like it and it is beautiful. Thanks for sharing it.

There is the legend (and book) about the Black Tulip concerning one who should have made it. However, this is the closest I have seen.

That's gorgeous. So dramatic, sleek, and beautiful.

Beautiful - I've never seen one in black or blue - It does look blue to me.
PS - I don't have a book - looked it up on the internet. Much faster.

When you mentioned the blue tulip, I guess I thought it would be more like a baby blue. This one is very pretty though, but it almost looks purple.

About Me

My photo
WELCOME to my blog. I hope you will return often.

I am on my third digital camera, all Olympus. I enjoy using it and sharing my photos. I also enjoy writing. I hope to share a little of each on this blog. My main blog is Postcards From the Northwest.

Kerri and I will continue to add benches to "For the Love of Benches Continued . . . " blog also. It is good to continue to share with her!

Continuation of the Kiggins House Re-model photos were lost when my computer crashed.

The latest city project, TURTLE PLACE, will unfold here as I have time to add photos. It is complete and maybe I can find enough photos someday to show you the final results. Next project after the two I am working on now. . .
