Odd how flowers never lose their charm, even when beginning to decay.

Belated Merry Christmas! And the decay here sort of portrays how I feel two days after Christmas. . .

This must be a very pretty tree.

Christmas all gone for another year ... so much excitement in the lead up, so much deflation in the days that follow ... just like this fading flower.
