Dead

Don't worry, I'm not about to show you pictures of road kill. Nothing gruesome here at all. While we were out in the yard looking around we couldn't find much new growth but we did find some things that were dead.
An old dried up leaf


A dried up hydrangea blossom


and we even found something dead in the house. This rose has seen better days but it's still too pretty to throw away

  2. Hi Ann,
    You have made some interesting nature studies in these photos. And so close up! You are good at macro-shots!

    Thank you for visiting my story about the cats Pierre and Melissa. You are first commenter and get an extra picture-link.

    I see you have changed your heading again. Duke is so cute.

    Hugs,
    Anna

  3. It will all come back more beautiful this spring! I do like the rose. Is that left over from Valentine's day? I would press it in a favorite book. :)

  4. Although I'm not so much a fan of dried flowers, the rose does look pretty :)

  5. I always think that even the dead vegetation is wonderful, there is beauty in everything if you look for it.
    Thanks for the lovely pics.
    Have a nice weekend

  7. I once dug a thimble-full of something that I hoped was dead out of my bellybutton, but Arlynda wouldn't take a picture of it. (TMI?)

  8. i love dead stuff, i would be right there beside you snapping away. i like that first shot, with the little balls or growths on it. i love detail of dead plants up close. the flower looks like if you hang it upside down for a while it will dry and you can take a dried rose pic...

  9. What is all over the dead leaf? It looks infected.

  12. But spring is right around the corner and that means that everything will come alive again. My favorite season of the year.

    Have a terrific day and weekend. My best to Duke. :)

  13. Love the rose and the hydrangea...but the leaf is a little bit creepy.

    Thanks for the inspiration. I'm going to go in my yard after work today and see what kind of dead stuff I can find!

  14. I tend to take pictures of this kind of thing all the time too. it is incredible to me how beautiful and detailed these aspects of nature can be, even if they aren't photosynthesizing anymore. Love it.

  15. Now those kind of "dead" things can be pretty!

  17. You just proved dead things can be beautiful!

  18. Just confirms that old saying, "There is beauty in death."

  19. You didn't find new growth yet? The sun has been warm here, so there is lots of little green shoots appearing everywhere in my yard. :)

    I love dried hydrangeas--they are still pretty to me.

  21. I just dead headed my roses that Hubby gave me on Valentine's Day this week and put them all in a bowl to enjoy a while longer. It's very hard to throw them away.

  22. It is fun that spring is coming. Little things are beginning to pop out. The trees are blooming here and some bushes are too.
