I want to start writing more about flowers. They just make me so happy.
These days I’m mildly obsessed with these white French Tulips. Tulips always feel so special to me, and the pale color is so pure and serene. Don’t mix them with anything. They like to stand alone and be admired. I put them in my living room where I can see them throughout the day.
I’ve enjoyed this bunch for the past 9 days because when I purchased them, I chose ones with tightly closed green heads, knowing that they would slowly open to their full majesty. Would you believe that they cost just $6 at Trader Joe’s? A florist would charge you four times as much, at least. I’m tempted to go buy another bunch tomorrow now that these beauties are reaching their glory, and will soon be dropping petals like winter snow (the closest thing to it here in L.A.).
