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.
