I keep coming back to flowers because they're so transient, so achingly lovely for such a brief blink of time. And a picture is the only way to remember what it's like before time takes its inevitable toll.
Not that decline doesn't have its own innate beauty, of course. But still, I'd hate to miss out on an opportunity to freeze time. If only the real world worked that way.
Your turn: Grab a flower-themed picture and share it on your website or blog. Already posted something? Share that, too! Leave a comment here letting folks know where to find it. Visit other participants to share the photographic joy, and check back through the week in case you've got more to share. Head here for more background on how Thematic works. Thanks for making this the kick that it is. Enjoy!
