Wooden Flowers | 1

― Kiran Desai

While hunting early spring flowers a few weeks ago, I became mildly obsessed- not with the tulips and daffodils so wonton for  a close up- but with what I took to calling “wooden flowers” – the bloom-like remains of last year’s bounty.  A fascinating combination of past and present (even days later, they had been replaced with this years’ new buds, truly transitory gifts),  I found their physical presentation and symbolic reminder captivating.

      Thank you! I think I love these early spring gifts as much as the gorgeous flowers that were sneaking in around them 🙂
