Ageing with style

A broken branch has found a temporary home indoors where I can still enjoy the flowers, even as they fade. I love how their colour has intensified, and the petals look like dancers’ skirts.

  1. Thanks for the lovely picture, Su! Sometimes in the spring, I have taken a broken cherry branch not yet in blossoms into the house and put in a vase. It was a wonderful experience to see its blossoms a few weeks early. Have a great week, Su!

  2. That’s something I too enjoy tremendously. I try to see a connecting line between fading flowers and my own fading ‘what’s that called again?’….. The latest flowers, nearly dead already, have this transparent, transluscient glow, faded colours, tired pink often, I so love. Just like me, you see?! πŸ˜‰

  3. I can see the dancers! Not only their skirts – the stem of the flowers are the lithe figures of prima ballerinas! πŸ˜„ Now we only need to fix tiny clay heads to them! πŸ˜„Or turn them into earrings like we talked about it on IG. πŸ˜‰
