Natural, Simple, Unpretentious
The healthy green leaves on the rose bush, the dainty little rosebuds or 'grown up' rose in full bloom. But it doesn't end here.
There's a new beauty in the dried petals or the entire bloom in dry form. You need not be a trained designer or artist to recognize a work of art in the natural, faded form - just lying against a contrasting texture or surface [such as the fabric covering this chair.] When you only have loose dry petals left scatter them or fill a pretty little cup, dish or saucer with them.
This makes a nice 'thinking of you' gift ..with a few fragrant leaves from Eucalyptus or lavendar stems or nothing added at all.
