Tonight was the one night of the year I always dread--tax night. The night I have to gather all of our receipts and income statements for our accountant. I hate tax season. I was in a bad mood all day just thinking about it. When I got home (before beginning the dreaded project), I decided I would photograph the dead roses given to me by my beloved on Valentines Day.
To be honest, the roses were a sad bunch of flowers that he picked up from Wal-Mart at the last minute. I'm not much for mushy things, so that was no big deal. It's the thought that counts, right? I told him thank you for the sweet remembrance, especially since I had not gotten him anything. Anyway, as I'm hauling my pitiful bunch of dried, dead flowers out to the yard to photograph (because I have terrible light inside the house), I noticed the reason why they looked so sad--three of the stems were broken and taped with Scotch tape! The texture in this picture covers up the tape, but can you believe that! LOL! I told him I discovered his dirty little secret and we had a good laugh. I'm so thankful a bunch of taped up dead flowers and a loving husband lightened my dreadful day. I hope you had a good Monday too.
