"Do tulips mean something special to you? You seem to be obsessed with them."
I stopped, and looked at Veritas – actually properly looked at him, seeing all the layers. As a species of flower, the tulips meant nothing more to me than any other rose, buttercup or orchid, but these…
They had stood by me and borne my anger, taking any punishment I deemed fit. They had helped bridge and surpass a gap. Even now, their counterfeit image was helping to ease my awkward, mad self into conversation…with Veritas.
"They never fail to remind me of you."

So those who follow me might know a bit about my tulip obsessed demon, Mori. That started at Dyrham Park, where, one March, I saw some beautiful purple/red tulips (Queen of the Night) and had to use them in a story somewhere. Come May, and I was writing about Mori, they just slipped in naturally.

I went back earlier this year, hoping to find the same variety (and get some pictures) but they'd decided to plant more 'conventional' tulips. I still got some pictures! :)

Feel free to download for full size - it makes a fantastic wallpaper, and it's high enough resolution for larger monitors without pixelation (tested this out on my 2560x1440 iMac - looks gorgeous!)

I saw this in my inbox and thought of Mori, then I saw you'd quoted him in the decription!

As if Mori would allow me not to quote him! :XD:

Somehow I don't think he'd be able to let the opertunity slip away.
