Dead Alive.

Acceptance Mark
Purchase Point

Have you ever bought a bunch of flowers and watched them die, not realising they are dead. I mean you buy them because they are beautiful and maybe because of the lovely smell, you place them somewhere prominent so people can appreciate them. You find a lovely vase to put them in and maybe colour the water and put some stones around the stems.

It never fails to amaze me that after only a day your mind becomes used to them and becomes numb with their beauty, because the next time I realise they are there they are all shrivlled up and dry. I know this may only be me and my take on things, but it does make me try harder to enjoy the delights that happen all around us every hour of every day.

I placed this new flower in with the old crumbling heads of the old ones, I think it poignant to see the beauty in decay and regeneration.
