the beauty of one single flower

I can never throw away a bunch of flowers at once, without saving a flower pretty enough to enjoy some longer in a small vase or bottle.

  1. Ik pluis ook altijd de boeketten uit op iets nog bruikbaars ;-) Zelfs de wc verdient afentoe een (letterlijk) bloemetje :-)

  2. I do the same. Bouquets last a good month for me. The fragile flowers disappear first but the remaining lovelies simply get rearranged into a smaller vase. By the end of a month I'm usually down to a blossom or two in a wine glass.

  7. Mmm... heel mooi! Soms maakt één simpele bloem ook even veel indruk als een hele bos. Staan er ook al weer mooie dingen in bloei bij Villa Augustus?

  8. Oh, I'm the same too and I always leave roses until they're old and dried up. They make such a lovely still life composition I think. Miles, my five-year old son, thinks otherwise however and always tells me to throw them out because they're dead!
