From seeing just the top, it looks like a tulip.

So, how big is that thing, anyway? I know how big it is on this (rather old) monitor, but that doesn't count for much...

Actually quite small. A bit larger than a ping pong ball, as I recall.

Then about tulip-sized. (-: But I'm not about to try picking this thing!

And really, that's not small for a flower. I tend to think of tulips as being the size of coffee cups, though. The ones Mother of the Child grows are.

Either she has a larger variety of tulip, or better growing conditions for them, or both. Ours vary between liqueur-glass size (taller and thinner) and just over ping-pong-ball size.

Of course, we have roses in sizes from about 1" across to 4 or 5 inches across, so maybe it's mostly genetics.
