Here are the first tulips in my most unusual garden.

Praxus 49ix Holo-Imager in inverse quantum mode.

What? Are they like double blossom tulips or something? I've had double tigerlilies, but never tulips. Neat.

This was supposed to be an April Fool's Day joke but I guess nobody caught on. Here is the original image which meets the challenge. These are some of the first tulips to bloom in my flower bed. These started blooming about a month ago.

Due to the warm winter, the tulips started emerging from the gound in December. I have four different varieties planted about six years ago. They have multiplied to the point that this year I have to dig up the bulbs and thin them out. I have been flagging the clusters as they bloom so I know which is which.

Well, April Fool to me anyway. Never saw tulips like that, quantum mode or not!

Cal,

I guess the disclaimer you positioned at the lower left wasn't as obvious as you thought.

Those tulips look very healthy and colorful. I remember the flowering tulips each year in Grant Park Chicago.

Aloha

Ha Ha! :blah:I didn't scroll down to the "message" right away. I was focusing on the tulips and wondering what went wrong with your camera!

Good one Cal!
