Morning Michell, beauty comes in all shapes and forms....Francine.
Looks like someone had a thoughtful partner on Valentines. Beautiful pics!
Wonderful, nature even when its fading away is beautiful. What a lovely quote to end the post. Have a nice day Michelle :)
Lovely photos and thoughts! Have a beautiful day.~ Zuzu
Lovely pictures and how true that quote is from Georgia O'KeefeMary x
Even tho we all age with time, there is still beauty in us, as with the rose.
It's nice to honour life in all its forms. This society could a use a few more reminders of this.
Very true about beauty!
I've never been one to appreciate withering or dried flowers, but you've provided a nice perspective. By the way, I haven't read 'Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie' yet, but after reading a sample and deciding to place it on my 'Must Read' list, I suggested it to a friend who is currently devouring it. I'm looking forward to getting to it myself -- thanks!
just lovely, michelle.
I definitely agree. Beauty can be found anywhere. Lovely shots :)
ah you can always spot the texture addicts...i bet you cant pass a soft wooly nubby sweater without running your fingers gently across it or a sun faded chipping red barn door...its okay; i am one too! And by the looks of it so are all the rest of your readers LOL so we dont see age or decay, we see your art and beauty in all of its texture ;) lovely capture in your photos!
And it would make a great pot-pourri or pomander filling after its glory...
I like fading flowers also. Maybe it's because the colors don't really go away they just change. I sometimes leave the fallen petals where they land for a time. xo
I had one of those brave roses a while back, but it gave up. It's gloriously sunny here today.. I need to go out and enjoy my Snowdrops! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
Sad and strangely beautiful anyway...
true...still beautiful :)
I don't get a lot of roses on my bushes so I like any flowers even the ones not so perfect they still smell wonderful.Merle......
True, that. There is often beauty in decay. I love decaying buildings...
Thank you for this inspiration. Please have you all a good Wednesday.
Going, going GONE!
Beautiful, Michelle :)
Ah, I love that quote by O'Keefe! Yes, that food was so yummy. The cake was hot out of the oven in that mini-crock pot. Awh, wonderful memory of the cake.
I love that quote and your beautiful rose.
Wow these are fantastic shots and that is so true. B
Love the quote and pictures. Beauty can be found everywhere...even in the most un~thought of places!
My Valentine's Day roses were destined for the bin until I saw this post! Absolutely beautiful!
Fading colors and wrinkled petals. I thought you were writing about me . . .
Beauty is everywhere, we just need to keep our eyes open. Love the light in the last photo.... beautiful.
So lovely - quote and rose. I love faded roses. xx
That's different! :-}
Love dried roses -- beautiful images.
Beauty is not saved for the young. Beautiful post. I'm a new follower. xo Jennh
