Friday Fabulous Flower - Another species tulip appears

Things have been busy & entire days are getting away.  At any rate the weather seems to have moved away from the freezing cold over nights for now, weather guy was more optimistic, but no matter what the plants have responded & the Phactors are struggling to clean up over winter debris to let things grow.  Another of Mrs. Phactor's species Tulips has appeared, and this one is T. turkstanica.  The flowers are another star-shaped tulip of sort of a cream color with a yellow center.  Quite bright and quite attractive.  Several flowers are held just above the rather slender leaves.  Again this has been a trouble free plant that seems to be naturalizing to its bed under a witch hazel shrub very nicely.
