Triumph Tulip, Tulipa ‘Jackpot’

When they first appear the flower buds are green. The rich colour develops gradually as the bud grows and opens - something I wanted to record in my painting.

Butcher’s Broom (Ruscus aculeatus)

The leaves of this botanical curiosity are really flattened stems, which is why the flowers and berries appear to be growing from the middle of the ‘leaves’.
