Little Seeds of Poetry

I know I have already posted one today, but...but....but I am leaving tomorrow for a week in Phoenix, AZ and I am not sure how much access to the internet I will have or if I will even have time to post.  I am visiting friends that are doers and goers, all kinds of plans are in the works, and I am meeting up with 2 ladies I have met thru this great world of photography on-line.  One lives in Phoenix and one lives in Tucson so on Thursday we are meeting and spending the day doing what all 3 of us  My eyes are going to be on over-load with all the beauty coming my thus the two posts today. But you betcha I will post all new pics as soon as I can upload and post.  Heaven...I'm in Heaven, can ya hear me singin'?    

As I was hustling around doing last minute chores  I was ready to throw out the tulips....they are definitely on the "can't hold their little heads up" any longer stage when I noticed the little black seeds that had gathered in the folds of the petals.  If I was a poet I would have sat right down and written a poem, they look like poetry.  Instead I took it's picture and am sharing with Lisa over at The Creative Exchange.

Hope your eyes find poetry in an image today!!

Until next time....


  1. Safe travels...can't wait to see what you bring back for all of us to see!

  2. I second your thoughts on capturing something most would think ugly. I find beauty in your "used-up" tulips. There's a metaphor in there somewhere.... :) Enjoy your trip.

  3. Oh have fun, I'm so jealous! I'm off to the doctor again to see if they can put humpty dumpty back together again! LOL
    Can't wait to see what adventures you have, I've never been out that way!! See ya soon and safe travels!!

  4. So lovely, have a wonderful trip. I am jealous, my trip to Phoenix is not for a few weeks.

  5. Oh Deanna, I am so excited for you!
    This sounds like a wonderful trip, and I look so forward to seeing all of the photographs you return with.
    I love this tulip. They are beautiful even once they have passed their prime.

    Thank you so very much for sharing with us today at The Creative Exchange.

    Have a wonderful evening, and a FANTASTIC trip!

  9. these are such fantastic shots, I love them

  10. Hi Deanna,
    Your photographs are stunning as always. I was just reading Terri's post on FOL and I glanced over and saw your pretty face. I thought, I wonder what treasure Deanna has on her blog today, and I wasn't disappointed. Wishing you a wonderful time. No wonder you are in heaven, and yes I can hear the tune! You get to fly away, a favorite of ge to be with girlfriends, another favorite of mine...and you get to take photographs and maybe do a little shopping of course. Magic!


  11. Have fun in Phoenix! You are so lucky to be meeting up with friends. We are going to Phoenix soon - I hope to give my camera a real workout!

  12. Gorgeous floral images! Have fun in Phoenix!

  13. Lovely macro shots.

    Have a wonderful trip!

  14. I hope you're having a wonderful time, Deanna! I hear the weather has been pretty nice there this week. My sister and her husband flew to Phoenix on Monday to visit my parents, who have been there for the past two months. Wish I was there, but instead I'm sitting here in all this snow :) I can't wait to see all the photos you're taking :)


Thank you so much for leaving a comment, I read and cherish them all. I will do my best to return the favor.
