Spent

If there were nothing else to trouble us, the fate of the flowers would make us sad.

Sassy said...

that is so true....I worked in a flower shop for over five years....and it made me so sad to throw away flowers that weren't quite dead...just a little wilted and over blown {too open}....such a waste......thankfully I have bigger issues...hahahahaha

I'm not a fan of flowers and quite often look forward to the day when they get thrown away.

And doesn't the water that the flowers sit in smell awful??
