That VERY moment!

As I walked into the kitchen to prepare the children’s breakfast before school, I couldn’t help but notice how the petals on one of the tulips were unfolding, giving it an almost orchid appearance.

Tulip Turning

Before I had a chance to “capture the moment” though one of the petals had dropped, leaving me with the flower above. Still nice but not quite as orchid looking as it had been a little earlier.

As I was took my photos, touching the vase only when utterly necessary, all I could do was stare at the remaining petals and ask myself… “mum, how much longer?”

  1. This made me smile, Joanne. One of the things I like so much about tulips is how they change every day all day long. They’re the only cut flowers I’ve ever seen grow longer after being cut. Amazing! 🙂
