These faded roses will probably sit in the kitchen window in some form or fashion for all of the fall and winter and into the spring...probably always. I think that I'll pluck off the deadest bit right in the center and keep the buds for a very long time and let them dry out. I always want to remember the beauty of them in full bloom on the day he gave them to me and I want to remember the love that surrounded the giving in the first place, so faded or not...I love them! :-)
Have a great weekend everyone!
