Friday flowers...spent bloom

I had forgotten about these images.
I admit I have had them for a while.

I have mentioned before I believe flowers are beautiful at all their life stages.
This David Austin bloom Lady of Megginch was past its best but I love how the petals are like fabric or tissue paper. It looks like a big floppy fabric brooch, or similar. Something from an old summer hat?

I think it's very beautiful :)
Photographed against some peeling paint in our backyard.
Did any of the Aussie readers watch Picker Sisters on tv last night? I think it might be a new tv addiction for me. Not sure what I thought of the results but it was fun to watch.
Have a great Friday. It's a long weekend here in Tas and I'm not working so yippee!


  1. Beautiful pictures Sarah. I agree, flowers, like people are beautiful in all lifes stages. Have to say that at my age!!
    Not acquainted with the Picker Sisters. Have to check them out.
    Have a great long weekend x

  2. I think it's beautiful too. Love roses in all these stages even when they are wilting. Haven't seen the Picker Sisters, is it anything like American pickers?

  3. I'm so pleased I'm not the only one who thinks this way about flowers Sarah. This rose and your images just go to prove it. Tulips are another flower that I love as it ages, when all the petals almost turn inside out. Enjoy your lovely long weekend! Amanda xx

  4. I agree Sarah! A David Austin is lovely even on it's way out. Enjoy the long weekend :)

  5. Yippee for long weekends! Hope your having fun
    Beautiful pictures - love the texture and colour of the rose - and the peeling paint too - haha!
    Didn't get to see the Picker Sisters, but will keep an eye out for it now
    Cheers, Kris :)

  6. What have you been up to on your long weekend?


I love hearing from you - your lovely comments make my day!
