Looking Upon Decay…

“I have always looked upon decay as being just as wonderful and rich an expression of life as growth.” – Henry Miller

I love how these flowers are still standing upright even in decay…

“There is something in the decay of nature that awakens thought, even in the most trifling mind.” – Sarah Josepha Hale

  3. Appreciate the sentiment and art in this post. It reminds me of fungi actually, how they thrive in decay and make something out of it.

    I’m glad people are putting in decaying plants and flowers. I would never have thought of it. Wonderful post my friend 😀

    If only each picture can talk, I feel like each would have its own unique character.
