After the tulips are past their prime, I love how the petals start to randomly fall off and gather on the counter around the vase. The contrast of the black to the intense red is especially pleasing.
In fact, I seem to be surrounded by red these days. We had dinner yesterday evening with my parents who just returned from three weeks in Turkey and they brought back with them wonderful kilims and purses in many different shades of red.
Red figures significantly in the card that we received last week from Kal Barteski, and I even took this picture on the weekend after I was overcome with the beauty of my bran flake breakfast:
I love that beauty can come from unexpected sources, like the strawberries in my cereal, or the design of an invitation, or petals falling from dying flowers. May we all look for the beauty in our every day, starting today!
