Yellow Tulip

I haven’t totally abandoned old books as props; here’s a “basic reader” from 1931 with a tulip from my Mother’s Day bouquet (thank you, Matt!) as bookmark.  As a former first grade teacher, I have a small collection of old primers and readers that I bought at garage sales or somehow acquired over the years.  The theme for this week’s Texture Tuesday is yellow, so I added the yellow tulip. This image is textured with teatime by Kim Klassen. I’m also including another shot in black and white.
