“Let us read, and let us dance; these two amusements will never do any harm to the world.”
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 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!
What I think is that I’m at this stage. Truly, Linda – ha!
Me too, Marian. And it’s wonderful!
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 🙂
You know, Karen, you’re right. I think prime is actually right now! Thanks for changing my paradigm.
