    Oh so very heartbreaking! Beautiful capture. I always feel a tug of sadness when witnessing an exquisite flower passing its prime as it slowly withers away…

  • You’ve summed up my feelings as well Ainsley. Sad to see beauty vanish in quite a short period of time but as Linda says below, " where there was one, there will be more ". Pleased that you liked the shot anyway even if it’s of " a lady past her prime ". Cheers and many thanks. Tony.

    But where there was one, there will be more!! Beautiful shot….

  • Very true Linda and it’s good to know that nature " keeps them coming ". I am really happy that you liked the " old lady " and her image. Cheers and thanks. Tony.

    Ah what a beauty – someone should tell her that even dried flowers can be exquisite!

  • Too late Georgie. She’s gone now. Hopefully in flower Heaven. Aah well, if she comes back reincarnated next year I’ll tell her then. ( Can you imagine the neighbors if they overheard me, on my knees, telling a flower that. The men in the white coats would be here pretty fast I think. ) Many thanks and cheers. Tony.

    Sad title for a once beautiful flower ! Great image Tony !

  • I know, I was in tears when I wrote it, such a sentimental sod I am. ( Ann just said no, " cynical old git " would be more apt. ) and who am I to argue. Thanks Roy, much appreciated. Cheers.Tony.

    Fading or not, this is still such a beautiful image. Colors come and go, and we see the beauty no matter what. Susan

  • Thank you Susan. It was a lovely flower that even a miserable old so and so like me appreciated. As Lynn said above, plenty of seeds so more next year. Cheers. Tony.

    Great title and beautiful detail, Tony!

  • As you can guess Dorothy, hadn’t opened the whisky then so was able to focus for once. I appreciate your lovely comment very, very much. Cheers. Tony. P.S. Are you back to working long hours again?

    Fading – but still beautiful. Great capture, Tony!

  • You are right Thea. Even to the last some flowers have a beauty that can please us. AS Lynn said above though, plenty of seeds for next year. Bet the flowers are looking good in your country now, hope that the heavy rain didn’t do too much damage a couple of weeks ago. Cheers and thanks. Tony.
