If you take a flower in your hand and really look at it, it's your world for a moment.
~Georgia O'Keeffe

Lately, I've been mesmerized by tulips. These are a couple more shots on my instagram: one and two.

  1. Beautiful images, Alexandria!

  2. Hello! I just came across your blog a few days ago and love being here. Your words and photos have a peaceful feel to them.
    I love poetry and beautiful words and you seem to find the perfect photos to put with them.

    I also love the name Little Postcards....

    Happy Spring!

  3. Exquisite photos. Very painterly. I love tulips too and you have captured their essence so well.

  4. Beautiful and so fragile. Happy National Poetry Month!

  5. I like the way you've been looking at tulips. I've been examining blooms myself lately. My walks through the Presidio have been filled with flowering trees, bushes, and herbs, as well as birds and bees. Spring is starting off well.

  6. i love tulips
    especially because they are growing in the vase
    and sometimes you get very funny stalks
    like little sculptures

    have a nice weekend alexandria


  7. Lovely !! I'm lucky this year because i have many tulips in my garden :)

  8. Your words and your lovely pictures are always an invitation to stop and think for awhile. This time it brought me back memories of one of my favourite childhood books «The Little Prince » by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, and especially his famous quote “It is the time you have wasted for your rose that makes your rose so important.”

  9. these are lovely xxo

  10. you already know i love your photos, but seeing these on IG was the highlight of my feed! i really hope you open up a print shop soon, even if it will mean disastrous things for my bank account. ;)

  11. I fell already in love with your tulip pictures on instagram - and once again I am fascinated by the way you correspond your photographs to a quote...

  12. I think I completely missed this one on instagram.
    Quite magical.

  13. you have captured the delicate, feminine and ephemeral essence of flowers...like ballerinas...
