Black tulips are quite something to see and quite wonderful with the raindrops on them.

Stunning color. They resemble grape Tootsie Pops. I guess I need to find my glasses!

Like others who have commented above, I have not seen this color of tulips growing. They seem to have a bit of an eggplant hue to them. Julie would love them, as we have eggplant paint on some of the walls of our house in Scottsdale.

Lois got some tulips for Mother's Day...no black ones, though. These are absolutely gorgeous...and your shot with the dew drops make them even more so...don't think I've ever seen black tulips before!
