Beauty in Decay: lost tulips

I do think there is much beauty to be found in decay…

In the absence of Cobwebs and Corrosion, I present some defunct tulips:

Decaying tulips...

Decaying tulips…


  1. I so agree! Love how the colors and textures change as the petals wither!

  2. I agree with you. All stages of life offer beauty.

  3. As Georgia O’Keeffe said, “Tulips often die so beautifully.”

  4. Lovely in its starkness. Is it relevant that painted studies that we call ‘still life’ the French call la nature morte or ‘dead nature’?

  5. Beautifully captured. I love seeing flowers ‘gone over’ you notice something different about them. This almost looks like a dancer!

    I do believe one of them is taking a bow after a performance 🙂
    It’s lovely to appreciate them for longer in this way !

  7. I agree about the beauty of decay. I love working with that subject.
    This is beautiful.

  8. Excellent … I like when beauty is found in roughness.
