fallen blossoms

the roses that you gave me
kept me awake
with the sound
of their petals 
                      - jack gilbert
spring arrived unusually early in victoria this year.
so much of our garden city was in full bloom by the end of february !!
now...the petals, like autumn leaves, cover our path ways.

these pictures were taken a few days ago 
while walking harlow, on the way to our local library.
the camillia had finished with its bloom and laid its petals to carpet this alleyway.
i have to admit... i thought the petals were more stunning in their fallen state.
oh...we really must embrace each moment !!!

lucky me - for capturing these few pictures,
because i went back the next day to take some more
but some industrious someone had already come through with their rake.


wishing you all a beautiful weekend !
