When beauty fades

I always feel a bit iffy about throwing dead flowers away; even when they have wilted and their colours have faded and they look quite sad. I feel like I have abused them for their beauty and have so ruthlessly disposed of them once they start to fade. Hmm. Maybe I just think too much.I remember someone telling me to throw out all dead flowers even those that are only just beginning to fade - bad luck, she says. But I find there is a certain beauty to a flower that has wilted.

Thoughts, anyone?

I like to press my flowers between heavy books, only i forget all about them until i next open the book.
Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. Unfortunately the blue skies have all disappeared and it is windy and cold.

creative people can find beauty in every flower,wild or cultured, fresh and wilted. So is about people,aren't they beautiful at every stage of their life: a baby, a young girl,a woman of a respectable age.

I agree with you. Wilted flowers, in my opinion, still have its beauty. Even more beautiful in a sense. <3
