Roses that I could not throw out from last year. They still retain their beauty as an old dowager, fade in color but together and erect.Nikon D9050mm 1.4 lensFeatured in:60 and BeyondWitheredCreative, Talented and Unknown50MM Prime Group

Thank you, Loree. These still sit on my desk. I’m either sentimental or lazy.

As I said to Loree, they are still on my desk…sentimental or lazy. Thanks for the comment.
Very nice shot
Thank you, Tom
this is so BEAUTIFUL, Tom!! Did you perhaps dry them in gylcerin; they seem to have somehow retained their colors and shape. Quite lovely….Congrats on your Feature.Peace,s
Sass, they are in my studio where there is little natural light. They just stay that way. Only flowers I was ever given ;-(
;( It is a pity that men are not supposed to be given flowers; the audacity of such drivel just drives me WILD!!And not in a good way. Beauty is beauty…and all humans need beauty But I’m preaching to the choir…I know, I know. Anyway, when my Papah was alive, I often gave him flowers in his later years. When he received his first arrangement, tears came to his eyes and gruffness to his throat….and he had a mild protest…for a moment…and then a soft smile came to his lips. After that, I never heard another protest. I love crushing such silly ‘rules’…you know?Well, now that I’ve written a book here, I’ll decamp and wish you a great weekend, Tom;))~sass
Had to wait a bit to respond. I was so immensely touched by the gift but also took a minute to allow it to show. Sometimes men are idiots!
The faded flowers do still have their own beauty
Thank you so much for the feature, Tom
