Hiding behind Thorns

These gorgeous tulips concealed themselves behind a fence of thorns. I spotted them by accident when one of the tulips raised his head to the sun and peeked outside the fence.

The fence was just a thorny bush that the tulips used as a barrier from all the noisy people who come to look for them and observe their beauty.

They reminded me of human behavior.

There are times in life when we just want to disappear, that no one will touch us or pay attention to us. We retreat to our inner world and like to be away from the crowd.

So I respected the tulips wish to be kept away from the crowed. I just took some pictures from distance and left, never to bother them again.
