One day I dropped in to see a friend who had a flower shop. She had gone to the auction that morning to purchase the flowers for the day. She saw B and figured it was a burgundy coloured tulip, so she bought 5 bunches. When she picked up her order, they were artificially coloured blue tulips. Her heart sank! So she offered them to me because in her shop she only had natural non artificial things and would not sell them. I loved them for their strangeness and that night I went to a friend’s gallery opening and gave him the tulips that he really enjoyed because they seemed so quirky to him!
