I don’t know who planted them, but I found a few tulips growing outside of an apartment in Saline, Michigan that I lived in a few years back. I got several photos from them that I liked. The best part was that for many years as a kid, I made fun of my dad for taking pictures of flowers. I always wanted to know if they were about to do something exciting or something. Now that he’s gone, I find myself taking pictures of flowers (and picturing him off somewhere laughing a bit at me for going full circle.)
I’m not sure if tulips are my favorite flower or not, but I really really like the peach colors and softness of this photo. It’s similar to one my dad took, that I have hanging on my wall.
