Still Life

This stunning photograph blows my mind. Jenny took it of a pile of parrot tulips and I keep thinking it looks just like a still life painting. In the Seventeenth century the Dutch impressionist painters were known to start painting flowers and fruit that was starting to spoil to remind one that such pleasures were short lasting ones. I am often reminded of this, myself, when we are taking apart beautiful arrangements that are just a day past their prime.
