What to do with a bad photo?

Ordinarily, I am a viscous photo editor.
When I load the pictures onto my computer I immediately scan and delete.
Out of focus - delete.
Sun glare - delete.
Accidental photo - delete.
But some of the pictures I take at an important location I have a hard time culling.
That's why this slightly out of focus tulip is still on my hard drive.
It isn't an ordinary tulip.
It's a tulip in Monet's Garden. I tried to delete it but decided to save it instead.

Here it is redone in Photoshop! Now I have a "Warhol style" tulip to use in my art card productions.
Monet's Garden and Museum is about an hour outside of Paris. It really is a lovely day trip.
