Found Dried Corsage From Unknown Occasion

Found while cleaning.

Dried corsage from an unknown occasion. It was resting  inside an opaque ceramic lidded box. And now that I look at it, boutonnière seems a more apt description. But here’s the thing- Preserved to remember a special occasion?  A sentimental moment. And I’ve not a clue what it could be.

I’m certain other people wear the flowers for the occasion, remove them from their clothing, then slip them into the trash.

 

A six word Saturday

Eastern Redbud Blooms

My friend Ginny planted this tree in my backyard as a memorial to my parents.  When Spring comes, despite the low temps tonight, the buds cluster and bloom all along the branches.

It is a most beautiful tree.

Soon the heart shaped leaves will appear.
