Silent Death

Dried Flowers Plants Nature

Germany, March 2014

I think there are no other beings that can die more beautifully and in silence than plants, i.e. cut flowers. The tones and shades of colors they take are even more fascinating than those they have as they are freshly cut and still lively. Decay is usually something we dread and we try with all our means to avoid or delay. But this is not the case for plants and trees. Or maybe it lays on our view over decaying. We find it getting old as being ugly. We used to see “being old” as “being wise”. Now we see it as “being useless”, “getting ready to be thrown in the garbage bin”.
