The fallen



I'm generally ambivalent about these big, pink blowsy flowers but I feel a little more affection for them that they're keeping me company in the backyard during winter. It doesn't feel so drab and green and brown as long as they're there, tucked off against the fence. Even on the ground, browning and withered, there's something lovely about them, perhaps something old-maidy, that makes me want to gather them up to float in dishes of water on the mantelpiece.
