Reaping Roses

There's a folder on my computer titled "m day on the washer". I look at the contents in wonderment and think, "I really want to show these, but it's not Mother's Day." So the images sit there gathering pixel dust. Well no more. 



It's spring 2013, and I'm just back from the San Francisco Flower Market. I've deposited my bounty in the front garden to prep for Mother's Day bouquets. I know, it seems odd to buy flowers when the garden looks so full. I felt the need for a little embellishment and the photo ops were too good to ignore.










In the rush a few days later to make the bouquets, I didn't have time for pictures, but these images seem even better for that time and place, as well as this time and place, months later!


People find life entirely too time-consuming.
