These "Queen of the Night" tulips with their beautiful sheen, provide an interesting interplay of contrasts against the white peonies, creamware vase and linen cloth, as they almost recede into the background where they play a supporting role. Completing the classical flow of the composition is a thorny rose. Two honeybees, wings glistening and hind legs full of orange pollen, are the finishing touches to this Spring arrangement.
