T is for Tulips

The tulips are too excitable, it is winter here.

Look at how white everything is, how quiet, how snowed-in.

I am learning peacefulness, lying by myself quietly

As the light lies on these white walls …

– Excerpts from Sylvia Plath’s poem “Tulips”

T is for Tulips


What is your favourite flower?


    • Aren’t they the loveliest colours? I actually like the white ones, even though they look a bit lost against our white walls 🙂

    Ah tulips. I have a pot of tulips that my grandmother planted up. She’s now gone, but a lone red tulip comes up each year. I couldn’t choose one type of flower. #AlphabetPhoto

    • A lone red tulip that comes up each year? That’s lovely! The image is very poetic 😉
