Variation On A Theme





Faded Glory...


I have always found it hard throwing flowers away.
 My friend Tish commented on the fact (in a nice way!), 
that there are as many dead flowers
 around the house as living.

 Looking around today, I'd say there are actually
 more dead than living.
 If they're not still in vases or containers,
 they're probably attached to postcards,
 hanging on the wall or even from an empty frame. 

Anyway, today's shots are simply
 of the flowers themselves-no props, no styling.
 I hope you like them!

  3. I like anything with seed pods! Your post made me laugh (not in a bad way!) because I spent a little of Sunday photographing 'dead' things from the garden - yup - seed pods. They have such a delicate volume to them - like your collapsed rose - and just a hint of their previous puffed up marvelousness. Have a good week Caroline!

    1. I love that cari-Jane-previous puffed up marvellousness-fantastic!! I agree, there's something even more beautiful and inspiring about dried flowers. Have a great week as well :-))

    1. Thank you Leonie! I'd like to say cow parsley-but I think not? Will try and check with someone-they're just from the hedgerows! :-)

  7. Beautiful! I like dead flowers, I find them sooooo romantic. Of course, I adore fresh flowers, but they can never be as nostalgic as the dried up ones, don't you find?

    Great shots!
