Broken down beauty
Dusky petals unfurling
Lovely to behold
Sometimes when I am at the local shops buying boring supplies, I will also buy a bunch of roses. We enjoy them for a week or two, as the buds slowly open.
There are always 15 roses in the bunch. However, when I was trimming them and placing in a vase, I only counted 14 roses. Then I noticed one stalk with no rose!
I found the head of the rose on the floor.
So I popped it in my tiny cut-glass vase, filled to the brim with water, and placed it on the window ledge in the kitchen.
This bud too is slowly opening up.
And it makes the washing up much more pleasant!
