My happy place (origin of Tulip Love)

I guess it's no surprise that I love tulips. I like many flowers in general, but of all of them, Tulips are my absolute number one favourites. I love the bright, cheery colours, the cup-like shapes, and the way they look spread out in rows and rows in an explosion of colour, gently swaying in the breeze...it just strikes a chord of happiness within me!

I was looking through some photos on my computer and came across these photos, which were taken on a family day trip a few years ago. I think it was the first time I had seen so many tulips, and it was probably the moment that I fell in love with this flower~

You know the phrase that some people say, "close your eyes and think of your happy place"? 

Well, any field full of Tulips is my happy place <3

I thought I'd share these pretty pictures, because it's a shame to have them languish on my computer. 


These photos were taken at Araluen Botanical Park (it's in the Perth Hills)~ 



*image heavy*

Totally decided, if I ever get married it'd be here, at Araluen!
Sooo pretty!
These flowers are cute too, they have butterfly shapes!
These look like Japanese cherry blossom trees~
A bright burst of happiness <3
I'm sad I don't have more photos! Well, I do have a few more, but I had a chubbier face back then, plus bad acne, so I'll skip sharing those pics! I'm gonna try and plan to visit this Spring though~

So now I'd like to know - what, or where, is your happy place?

*Also, please take a look at a small poll I'm running. I'm thinking about changing my blog title, so let me know what you think! It's underneath my profile pic*

*And look forward to a shopping haul post next update!*

  1. Lovely pics! That field of tulips does look great! I'm a boring person so my happy place is home. I suffer from mild hayfever so going to botanical places is almost like suicide. And a reply to your comment - cake is serious business!

  13. SO gorgeous!! I wish I wasn't allergic to pollen :( Flowers are sooo beautiful, I'd love to lay in a field of tulips with a book... awww.
    Also in reply to your question on my blog - I just store my lashes in the drawer in the original boxes (exactly like you saw in my pic, I just shove them in my drawer LOL) so yeah not a very helpful answer unfortunately :P but you definitely sound like you have way more than me!!! Hmm maybe buy some sort of container with levels/mini drawers so you can put them in compartments or something? I dunno, it kinda makes sense in my mind haha :)

  26. Aww, too bad about your allergy.
    Haha, yep I do have a lot of lashes, I went to The Reject Shop a few days ago and bought 2 plastic containers to put them in - they just barely fit! No new lashes for me for a while :)
