These flowers were given to me on Mother's Day by my husband, as I am a dog-mother! But it was the first Mother's Day after my own mother had passed, so it was of course a very difficult time. When the flowers began to die it became especially poignant, and I was grateful to be able to channel those intense feelings of sadness into an image that is, unfortunately, something we can all relate to at some points in our lives. But from sadness comes beauty, and that is something to cling to.
