Stigma checked

Managed to patch together a series of a tulip in its decline, from the pictures I’ve been taking the last couple of days. Tulips are not much to look at in real life – the housewife in me wants to throw them out. Properly photographed and worked over, I’m fascinated by the monumental shapes I see, getting more interesting as decay goes on. Petals just ornamentation, stigma and stymen coming to the fore.  [That’s what the reproductive organs of flowers are called, in english. I checked]
