Optical Illusion

This is not an optical illusion. I have this one mutant white tulip in my garden. Just one.

The hand is there for scale, it really is that big. It's really quite lovely but it scares the heck out of me every year. You should see it blow in the wind, it looks like an alien antennae picking up remote signals. Nature really does astound me.

Amazing ! It must look so luscious too when it opens and reveals its stamen, etc...
Nature never fails to blow me away !

Wow! That's quite the tulip!

Every spring, when I see other people's tulips, I regret not getting around to planting any in the fall. One of these years I'll get on the ball.
