Chrysanthemums and Roses an anonymous gift. I think from a neighbour.

When they had heard the King, they departed; and, lo, the star, which they saw in the east, went before them, till it came over where the young child was.

Matthew 2: 9
Chrysanthemums the joy of autumn.
White with green tinged well bred large “budded” Roses with two spikes of Snapdragon in bud.
The yellow of the Lilly centre going into blackness and the curl of the smaller petal with the waves of the larger one make this a focus.
Colour
Black and white! (But not that nice crisp black and white.) The petals of the Chrysanthemums look more ridged like they have been pencil drawn.

I want to say a big thank you. I think we know who you are. Life is a mixture of Chrysanthemums and Roses. So glad we met you both and can’t help but love you.

Together and mixed up just like life.

“Obstacles cannot crush me, every obstacle leads to stern resolve, he who is fixed to a star doesn’t change his mind. ”

Leonardo Da Vinci

  1. Wow they’re lovely! You have a special neighbour. But then I reckon you’re a special neighbour yourself.
    Good da Vinci quote.
    Happy Sabbath sis. 🌸
