Unfurling - April 2017 - NorthernShy
New tulips, new petals, new beginnings. I was not planning on taking more tulip photos today, but I saw that new leaf, that delicate little twirl, and I couldn't resist. But then I started to feel a little sad. That lovely little leaf has yet to unfurl, and the flower will not last much longer. Not much longer at all. But I tucked that thought away, and I focused on the little leaf. Because it is beautiful now. Because unfurl it will, and it will bloom and it will be beautiful and it will stretch towards the sunlight in the window like everything is just beginning. Time is slipping away. But I'm going to ignore that. Ignore time. Focus on beginnings. And keep unfurling.
