It took less than five days for these tulips to go from tight buds to blown flowers. Flowers are ephemeral by nature, making them all the more precious in our eyes. They give of their beauty and then are gone.

    A perfect choice for this challenge. The flowers and their color is a gift, but I feel that their very briefness is also an important gift. It’s a reminder to return to the moment. What a delightful challenge this one is.
