Flowers On Friday: Tulip

I brought some extra holiday cheer home from the grocery store on Christmas Eve. A bouquet of elegant red tulips and purple thistles.

As they began to lose their freshness I realized they were a gift from myself and I wanted to remember their beauty. Photographing this bouquet was a lovely way to let go of the frenzied energy at the end of the holiday rush.


  1. I love the idea of a post-holiday gift to yourself. I’m still trying to come down from the December frenzy. I like how close in you got on that tulip. They’re some of my favorite flowers…such simple and strong lines.

    1. Thank you! I adore tulips too. They are not easy to photograph, I must say. So, I tried a lot of variations and liked this one best.
      Yes, gifts for myself go a LONG way. Try gifting (time, love, hope, space, freedom, creative en-devours, etc…) something special to yourself today and see how much of that frenzy washes away! Enjoy!!

  2. Wow, Carrie! Love seeing what you see! I still remember their fresh spirit and beauty in your home Christmas Eve. XOXO

    1. Hi Britt! These flowers added that extra something I was looking for 🙂 Loved having you here to celebrate the season with. Thank you for your comment, it means so much that you are sharing in this adventure with me!

    1. They make me really happy! I used to love visiting the tulip fields in Northwest Washington growing up, incredible colors. Something for your to-do list for next year 🙂
