Not your usual Spring greeting


What kind of flower is this? I saw it in a planted pot at Trader Joes. I loved the color of the petals.

Spring is greeting us with transitory flowers~ from the  browns of winter-

To the pink of new hours~ Don’t forget the pale green of almond bud life-

Buried deep inside~ revealing texture to almost flavor rife-

Cup holding delicacy each petal sighs~ shaped like hands-

Reaching and beckoning~ with soft sweet commands.

    I think it’s a tulip tree. Alan would probably know for sure though.
