Fringed Tulips in North Holland

Jun 27, 1988

I found these 3 intrusive red tulips in this bed of otherwise singularly colored tulips here at the Keukenhof Gardens in Lisse in North Holland. Not only were they a different color, but they were fringed, as well! I wondered, what were these rebels doing here? Were they planted to be so different? were they intruders? or merely overlooked by a gardener? In any case, they provided a very different sort of photograph to make..
