A Photo a Week: Dead Plants

This week Nancy has given us the challenge of finding dead plants.

Even though their lives are over they can still be beautiful.

I found these dead plants at my parent’s house.  My mother was a great gardener but with her Alzheimer’s all  that has gone now and the sad part is that she doesn’t see how her garden is dying.  My father now has someone to work in her garden but it will never be the same again.

That is why I have edited these photos in monochrome.

As you can see the spiders have taken over.

Thanks for visiting.

Cheers

  1. These are beautiful and poignant. I’m sorry to hear about your mother’s Alzheimers. Both my inlaws have forms of dementia, and it is awful to watch. My mother-in-law still gets some pleasure from her beautiful garden, I’m glad to say. 🙂
