Dried flowers but not too much


In the garden the door is always open into the "holy" - growth, birth, death.
Every flower holds the whole mystery in its short cycle, and in the garden
we are never far away from death, the fertilizing, good, creative death.


May Sarton

You're master of the macro Nicola! And I like the analogy too.

Very nicely done. Great DOF, colors, details and writing. Mary Sarton was a fabulous writer too. smile
Lovely image.
Like the processing!
Perfect DOF and colour in the background well suits this dried flower.

even in death there is beauty Nicola, this shallow focal plane really helps lift this image into the special. love it. mal
gorgeous gorgeous green dof...there is so much beauty in this scene of death...
etonnant le contraste entre le fond vert ,symbole d'espoir, et ces cadavres de fleurs, presque noirs
