Today's Flowers: Mom's Roses a Week Later


I love fresh flowers, but I feel sad when they start to fade out.  This morning I combined my Mother's Day bouquet with my mom's.  I trimmed stems and cut off leaves in the hope of extending the lifespan of these roses as well as the subtle and lovely flowers that fill in the background.

  1. yes, we honor them by holding on. Then it feels strangely liberating to give them up, clearing the decks for new blossoms and joys!

  3. Beautiful flowers, lovely colors, wonderful captures and a great way to start my day! Hope you have a great day and, if you're in South Carolina, stay safe from the storm!

  4. They are still beautiful. I like Cloudia's comment. It's true, I do what you do extend their life, then when they can give no more, it feels good to me, to let them move on.

  5. I am the same and I seem not to be able to make them last very long. We received several bouquets of stunning flowers for our wedding and I only got them to last a week. It was such a shame, I almost cried...
    Lovely capture of beautiful roses.;)
