My boyfriend surprised me with fringed tulips for V-day. I had seen these hybrids before but had always opted for the more common variety, because to be honest, these aren’t the most visually appealing flowers when they are fresh. I must say though, I have never seen flowers wilt so beautifully before. As they begin to decay, their fringe begins to crinkle up (adding character to their natural gradient), and their shape also seems to get a little more rounded. I hadn’t planned on photographing them, but towards the end of their aging process I couldn’t resist.
