Take me down little susie, take me down

I know you think youre the queen of the underground

And you can send me dead flowers every morning

Send me dead flowers by the mail

Send me dead flowers to my wedding

And I wont forget to put roses on your grave



Sorry...couldn't resist...

Wowza.... that is a beautiful shot!

Natalie said...

I used to do that to all the roses I got. But since getting married I don't get a lot anymore. LOL!





My Wordless Wednesday is up too! :)

Shelia said...

Beautiful picture! Haven't dried flowers in a long time. Happy WW!

Tim said...

I really love the colors in this one, too. But I'm curious, what're the blue thingys?

And Miles To Go... said...

what a beautiful shot!! So visually interesting!

alice said...

Tim, the blue thingies are part of the wind chime that's made by hanging some glass blobs from a small piece of wood (but I was more intrigued by the way the glass blobs would interact with the morning light in my kitchen window, so it's not actually in a place where the wind blows very often).



Chris, thanks for the earworm!



Everyone else, thanks for the kind comments!

Hi there, Alice. You've captured a delicate sense of magic between the light and the drying floral image. This photo absolutely sings...makes me wish we had a little more sunshine around here today. You've certainly inspired me to try a similar theme the next time the light outside cooperates.



I've posted my WW photo here:

I hope you have a wonderful rest-of-Wordless Wednesday, and look forward to seeing more of your work.



All the best,



Carmi

It's kind of sad, but a lovely picture! Happy WW :P

Kelly said...

There is a strange kind of melancholy here, despite there being so much color and light. Well done!

alice said...

Frigga and Kelly -- it's interesting that you might use words like "sad" and "melancholy," as these were some flowers from my mother's memorial service (she's been gone for over a year now, but the family recently got together for the anniversary).



I think the ghosted glassware in the lower left gives the image an ethereal quality -- maybe that contributes to the strange mood.



I also think I really need to wash my windows! ;-)

Amazing photo, Alice. I agree with Frigga and Kelly about the melancholy, too.



Striking...
