I’d rather have roses on my table than diamonds on my neck. ~ Emma Goldman
Since I recently did a post on photographer Jane Reece, I thought I’d share another of her photographs with you, since the beauty of that picture always takes my breath away. It’s an original, hand-tinted photograph Reece made around 1941. I love the simple coloring, the detail of the vase, the flowers, the wood behind them. It’s beautiful in its complex simplicity.
Roses are certainly beautiful, and I adore their scent. But I will admit to being partial to carnations as my favorite flower.
What’s your favorite?
