Default The lone yellow Lilly in my yard

I have only one Tulip that survived the winter in my yard this year.

Here the yellow Tulip is trying to survive a rain storm...


Here is the Tulip all perked up on a sunny day a day later.

The first and last are really good. The middle two have a couple of places that are blown out, which detract a bit, because they are otherwise very nice. Are these lilies? I would have thought they were some type of poppy from the shape, so that goes to show what I know about flowers and plants (next to nothing!).

You know, you just may be right. I don't know flowers and that is Not a Lilly... it was late when I posted I don't know flowers that well either. I think I meant Tulip or Poppy like you said. Anybody know the correct name of this flower?

When you only have one, shoot what you've got. Nice shots.

Looks like a tulip to me.

Hmmm... and I would have guessed some sort of tulip. I don't know a whole lot about flowers either but, I know they're pretty and I love looking at them and that's really all that matters!

If it's a bulb then its probably a tulip - that was my second thought. In any case, it's a pretty flower.

Very nice photos of a yellow tulip. No doubts about the species.
