best before #4

faded white rose and raindrop
A little too obvious perhaps but fading flowers will no doubt feature quite often in this ‘best before’ series, not least because I’m a floraphile. Some blooms fade gracefully, others fizzle out into fascinating seedheads. Roses are renowned for becoming blowsy with age but these are usually the big, bold bloomers, whereas French noisettes gather their frothy petticoats to the end.
