Tulip portrait - unusual pattern, rogue petal, and unexpected closing and opening.

I enjoy having more plants than I have space for and inevitably end up gifting some, killing some, and re-planting some of my plants in strange new places - all with varying  results.

And this week I am putting one more plant there (please don't ask me about the timing). This was a tulip bulb that stubbornly did not want to start and then got out with a flare showed some very interesting color patterns on the petals and had one special petal too. It delighted me with repeated closing and opening at the times when I did not expect and I documented this bloom in my sketchbook - here are the highlights:
