Beautiful roses

on August 30, 2012

Saw what at first glance seemed to be some very sad looking roses in the reduced ‘pot’ at Tescos.  Was about to rush on by, but then I looked a bit closer and saw that, yes a few of the outer petals are slightly browning, but overall they are still really beautiful.  So I bought them ….. a whole £1.75!  Popped them in a vase of sugary water …. and just look at them now …. absolutely beautiful!

I’ve just used them as a meditation …. starting with really looking …. and seeing the vibrant pink, the delicate swirls, the beauty; then the smell …..  subtle, soft gorgeous perfume.  Uplifting, calming, joyful …. and all because I slowed down a bit and took the time to notice.
