Rumpled Roses

Rumpled Roses by Karen Gadient, 2014

One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizonβ€”instead of enjoying the roses blooming outside our windows today.

  1. This is gorgeous Karen!!β™₯ Does look like rumpled rose petals, maybe captured in glass? You could enclose an image like that in a paperweight I’m sure it would quite stunning! πŸ™‚

      Thank you! πŸ™‚ You’ve a good eye: I was inspired by the cluster of rose petals that had fallen into the bottom of the glass jar we keep our cut roses in. David has a number of rose bushes in the yard and they’re blooming like crazy right now, despite the heat.
