Beauty unseen

Skagit Tulips 2015

This year we wandered into a portion of the tulip fields that had been intentionally beheaded. Several rows of green stalks with blossoms scattered in the trenched rows – I suspect these were grown for the bulbs and not the blossoms. Think of the stored beauty underground – a secret for the coming year.

  1. ‘stored beauty underground – a secret for the coming year.’ Love that!
    Seed production takes strength from the bulb, so they are headed to optimize the bulb. It must be heartbreaking to see. I’d want to follow along behind the cutter, gathering the longest for bouquets!
