Two and a half flowers

Two white flowers, and one that’s already given up, are huddled together in the meager shade of the deck.

Dead Tulips

I had a tiny, tiny surgical procedure a while back (it was so tiny that from going back to the operating room to walking out the door to go home was just over an hour) but my sweet friend Janet thought I’d earned a lovely bouquet of tulips.

Remembering the photographic success I had with week-old roses (also from Janet!), I save the tulips until they started to fall apart. As you can tell, old tulips aren’t quite as compelling as those roses. But still, I had to try.

Last week’s roses

I had a little reception at my house last month for my good friend Brett Erickson, who’d been the juror for a photography show at the Buddy Holly Center. My friend Janet did the food and decorations for it. She’s amazing, and turned my vintage dinnerware into vases, which she filled with some of most beautiful roses ever.

And, a week later, the roses were fading but still beautiful.

Well, of course I’d have fresh flowers every day if I lived around here.

March 7

Sorry to be so technical, but I am going to describe these as “small flowers, white.” They are in my front yard, under the live oak tree.
