Opening Day

 I know it happened a week ago in baseball, to which I pay no attention.  Also, down in the sunny flats of American Valley, the tulips started blooming a month ago.  However, at our house, in the shady "cold spot," the tulips bloomed for the first time today. By sundown, they had closed up again.
 I love watching them go through their daily cycle of opening and closing.
 They are seldom visited by bugs, so I don't hang around them for very long at a time.  But, I do enjoy their architecture.
I could stare at those stamens and pistils for hours.  Click on any photo here to see what I mean.
