Faded rose

Elegant and beautiful even when faded.

Couple of weeks back they were advertising Hampton court flower show in our town centre and they were handing out a rose to everyone. I got one in yellow and gold. Left it in the vase and forgot about it. Yesterday when I looked, it had completely dried up , but I was struck by its beauty even when it had dried up.  It still looks so perfect amazing. Perhaps they had treated it with something so that it dried up without dropping petals or looking withered.


  1. certain roses seem to dry better then others I have found, not sure why tho *shrugs*

    1. I have a feeling they may have treated this one though because they had to have it outdoors in the square for a long time.

  2. Dear Shashi, that is such a beautiful rose, and it dried amazingly well. My son and daughter in law often send roses for my birthday, but I’ve never had any luck with drying them. I’ve tried all kinds of methods (as advised online) but nothing works – maybe I will try just leaving them in the vase next time. :)
    I hope your husband is getting better day by day.
    Have a good rest of the week!

    1. Thank you Barbara. There have been many ups and downs still with his health but I hope it will start settling down soon.
      It appears they may have treated this one as they had to have it outdoors in the square for a long time in the sun.
