Sad flowers

When I pass a flower shop I often pick up fallen flower heads from the ground. I know it’s a silly habit, but I just can’t help feeling bad for those beautiful flowers which will never make it to anyone’s home and fulfill their destinies. It makes me a little sad, so I bring them home.

These photos are taken in Copenhagen yesterday. The flowers in the photos above have traveled from Denmark to Sweden!

Here you can see some decorative cabbages, which look like flowers:

These flowers I don’t even know the names of!

    Wonderful pictures! I think I like the one with the blue flowers and the roses the most.

    What a brilliant hobby! I love that you save those poor flowers, very much :)

    That reminds me of when I was a little kid going to the toy store. I would always pick the loneliest, saddest looking toy that I thought no one else would take home.

  4. Antonia, you have a lovely heart. ^^

    How kind & decent of you to give those flowers a nice new home :)

    Sweet post — I feel the same when I pass by little, lost flowers. Copenhagen is nice, isn’t it? :) Btw, I think the pink flowers might be ginger flowers. Not from the spice plant, which has exotic pinkish-white flowers, too, but from a plant from the ginger family grown for the flowers. I think…!

      Thank you, Ulrikke! Copenhagen is wonderful, one of the greatest cities I’ve been to, and I’ve been to many:) Are you from there?

      • Ulrikke says:

        Indeed, I am, and I’m very glad to hear you feel that way. :) We don’t always appreciate the city enough over here, I think, but sometimes whine a little bit about it, which we really shouldn’t… Copenhageners like Lund very much, too, and Malmø’s city centre is great! It’s the attraction of “the other shore”, I suppose. It’s a luxury to live by Øresund and be able to visit another friendly country in half an hour. And the natives even understand you! It’s hard to beat. :)

    You have such a kind soul :-) My grandmother used to do the same thing in Mexico. She used to say that they still looked very pretty and offered a lovely fragrance to fill the room. She was right. I try and do the same with flowers in my garden. I love the way you arranged them in the small bowls.

    That’s a pretty cute thing to do, shows you got a big heart, even for nature:) But the flowers still look gorgeous so its good they ended up in your nice cosy home!!!

    Decorated cabbages? That is impressive!
