  2. Lovely. I've never even thought to have a favorite dead flower, but why not!? Now I am even more eager for spring/summer to see what beauty death beholds.

    1. I've always felt a sentimental attachment to fading flowers. I hope this small added facet to your observations enhances your spring and summer.

  3. These flowers must look outstanding when they're blooming, because they look great when they're dead. I love your offbeat observations, Denise!

    1. They are all around the Bay Area and make me very happy. I'm sure you have your own beauties in Nashville.

  7. We don't have camellias blooming in January here in PA. Lovely to see yours in bloom- dead or alive. I think dead roses are pretty too.

    1. Today I noticed some magnolia trees beginning to bloom. It seems early. Sometimes it's difficult to know what season it is in San Francisco...
