Thirsty Tulips

Ever wonder what tulips look like after they run out of water?

A few days ago my tulips drooped dramatically overnight which led me to discover that the vase was completely void of water.  A fresh supply perked them right up in under thirty minutes . . . but in a distinctly different hue!  The brief lack of water must have affected something about their pigmentation.  I promise the difference isn’t from a change in white balance!

Sadly, the fresh water only bought them a few more days — into the trash they went this morning.
