Dead Beautiful

When I tend to my plants, pluck away the dying or broken blooms, leaves and stems, I cannot help but be quietly moved by the beauty in their decay. There is beauty in the most unlikely places, if we care to take the time to notice. So, I’ve started to take photos of my dead plant bits.

“I learned that just beneath the surface there’s another world, and still different worlds as you dig deeper. I knew it as a kid, but I couldn’t find the proof. It was just a kind of feeling. There is goodness in blue skies and flowers, but another force–a wild pain and decay–also accompanies everything.” David Lynch
