“Let us read, and let us dance; these two amusements will never do any harm to the world.”

~ Voltaire

Yesterday, when I was going to throw out the tulips, I couldn’t help notice the unique beauty of the long since past-their-prime flowers so I took time for a photo shoot before tossing them. This is one of the many I shot.

I think the photo series pairs nicely with the topic of appreciating life at all ages and stages. What do you think?

Today it’s housework day, and after that I just might curl up with a book.


I’m a writer, reader, and creative. I thought by now I’d have things figured out, but I keep coming up with more questions. I think that’s okay. I’m here most mornings pondering ordinary things and the thin places where faith intersects.
  1. I agree, Linda, it is a nice pairing. I’ve always thought tulips are almost more beautiful as they age. I love the way the petals flow in all directions and change colors. And then when they start dropping all over the table, then it’s time to let them go!

    1. Exactly, Karen!

  2. What I think is that I’m at this stage. Truly, Linda – ha!

    1. Me too, Marian. And it’s wonderful!

  3. How beautiful this flower is. “Past your prime” can be beautiful. What is ‘prime’ anyway? Prime is just not when I could fit in a bikini 🙂

    1. You know, Karen, you’re right. I think prime is actually right now! Thanks for changing my paradigm.
