Not decaying gracefully…..

Astroemeria don’t decay in a manner that is generally conducive to photography, I am finding! They are either alive and happy, or the petals just fall off, with seemingly no in-between…..

However, I did kind of manage to get a few tell-tale dark edged petals, and some droopy stamens!

  1. You do like value for money, don’t you, Sue? 🙂 🙂 Just teasing! My carnations would probably be a sore disappointment too, but you can’t go wrong with roses.

  2. How dare they refuse to decay for the camera? Bad flowers! 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.

      Teehee…Well, they are decaying, but largely not in the way I want them to!😀😀😳

      Oh, and I’ve left them in a vase minus water, just to see what I will find in the morning…very likely a pile of petals (on top of those that have already fallen) that will take time to clear up…..what I do for art!

    The first two are lovely.

  4. Decaying or refusing to decay gracefully they are very beautiful, Sue!

  5. Oh…these images are beautiful and evoke the memory of their scent.
