Withered and beautiful tulips

withered but still beautiful tulip

January is a very dark month in Denmark. We are longing for the sun, for the flowers and the colors. Luckily we can buy tulips now, and put them in vases inside the house. They are beautiful but they don´t last forever, and the sight of a bunch of withered flowers is nearly as sad as the dark winter.  At least from a distance.  At a closer look, the beauty is still there, it´s just the “story” that have changed. Maybe to  End-of season dance ?

    It´s interesting to know which of the photos you like. I am learning something about pictures every time I get feed back. Thank you.

    This makes me feel better about being old. 🙂 If tulips can still look pretty when they’re withered, surely there’s hope for those of us over 50… thanks for reminding me!

    You are right, lets hope the connection is obvious for others than us. 🙂 Happy Valentines day.
