It's a Tulip


Last week I posted a quiz picture of a wall and asked what the out-of-focus item on the left was.

No-one came remotely close. Gail's Man gave the wittiest response. I thought Babooshka was on the way there until I realised she'd written boom and not bloom.

The photographs are from the grounds of Pole Bank Hall. I'd taken a few of the solitary tulip. One close-up focused on the wall and another focused on the flower. I thought the pair would make ideal material for a little quiz.

You can see the wall and tulip in their natural surroundings in my latest post on Ackworth born, gone West

Glad you found my answer amusing. If I don't know the actual answer, I'll always try and think up something hopefully amusing.

I would never have guessed it was a tulip. Looks like you stumped everyone.

I look forward to the next one.

Hi I walk past that spot two weeks ago... the red flowered Horse Chestnut Tree is righ by this... Never noticed that.. I even walked up the pathtowards thehouse as building work was being done last time I was there.
Well done Gerald.

Oh, well - I'll just have to smile and say "Better luck next time" to my self.

Honestly - I hadn't a clue.

Can I get away with saying it was a typo and meant bloom? No, thought not. Certainly stumped my mind's eye.
I hadn't anticipated blooms being there, too busy trying to be a smart alec. Enjoyable though both the pic and other peoples answers.
