Day 364- Stop And Smell The Roses



I have a habit of picking up tiny wildflowers from the road, usually on walking trails or when I run. These I picked on a mountain in the Kakadu National Park when I visited Darwin in August this year. They look like tiny spider lilies and even though I have kept them in a wine bottle for 4 months now, the colours are still brilliant and have not faded.


There were a couple of occasions when I even found pots of plants, usually not in good health. There was this particular spot just outside the park behind my house that appeared to be a popular dumping ground for these homeless plants.Of course, I carried them home, pot and all.


Sometimes, I find very good use for them.

Often times, I don't.
 

But at least they are not homeless anymore.

These flowers are just beautiful! And so vibrant!
As far as my flowers are concerned I forgot to add that these are used to adorn ones finger nails.. maybe that's why they were so fragile.

Happy happy happy New Year from all of us to you, dearest Sam! Many travels and a lot of joy and love for this incoming 2013!
Hugs and kisses
