Beauty in Decay/12 The End of the Rose

Believing, as I do (really?) that you can’t have too much of a good thing, here’s a rather defunct rose:

Once upon a Rose

Once upon a Rose

Oh, and it is only the end of the rose, not the end of the road…more to come in the chronicles of dead flowers….



  1. Sadly most of my roses (I don’t have many) flowered whilst we were away, so all I have are decayed ones 😦

  2. You have an artists eye Sue. The shapes and textures are beautiful

  3. It’s not just the subtle colours but also the contrasting white background that delights, and I like the generous composition that allows space to the right for those last remnants — so many snappers would have left the last out but for me theybalance and complete the picture, intellectually and emotionally. A quiet and pognant meditation (the photo, not my ramblings!).
