Last week I was gifted a beautiful arrangement of antique roses and boy, did I enjoy them! A few of the shots I took close and a few of them closer still. I am fascinated by the intricate delicateness of flowers.
Everything is packed so tightly inside a tiny little bud.
And then when it is released from the confines of its green cocoon the petals just seem to spill out, at first slowly and then seemingly in a burst. I loved the color of this one and oh mmm gee the smell has heavenly.
The petals are so delicate and thin. I love how you can enjoy the variegated shades of color on the pink one.
And then there is the tight spiral that gradually unwinds.
Each petal unwraps itself but still maintains the ruffle of memory.
My favorite flower is the tulip but I cannot argue with the beauty of a rose.
Have a wonderful Monday, friends. I hope you see little bits of beauty in random things this week and marvel at the work of His hands!
