    Stark yet beautiful…what a lovely effect!

  14. I think there is a quiet dignity and beauty to a spent flower…you captured it well

  15. Yes, the party IS over, isn’t it? My three rose bushes are in wooden tubs on my back porch; recently, two of them sent out new green leaves. I’m sure the most recent below-freezing temperatures have put a stop to that action! Lovely capture of the “after” life of the rose.

  16. Pat says:

    Your dead flowers look better than my real ones – you are a wonder!
