I took these photos of my Mother’s Day carnations just before they finally withered up. Can you believe they lasted so long?! I have a weird habit of keeping flowers even after they die and decorating with them anyway, in baskets or jars around my house. I am a very sentimental person… I still have the first roses my husband bought me as our first anniversary surprise, and the flowers a friend gave me in the hospital after Ayla was born. I’m sure not everyone would share my same sense of aesthetics for dead flowers, but I still enjoy having them around to reminisce if nothing else!
