Botany Photo of the Day will have brief written entries on weekends, holidays and my vacations from April through September. – Daniel
Tulipa ‘Zurel’ is coloured purple and white, photographed here en masse with an errant unknown red tulip. One of the charms of the Roozengaarde tulip fields was the presence of uniformity-breaking individuals in different colours scattered throughout the plots – that little dash of “imperfection” spurred dozens of conversations easily overheard by photographers waiting for the breeze to vanish. Those exclamatory conversations were absent in other fields where a strict uniformity of colour was maintained.
