(Dead-heads and yellowed leaves, etc.)

Even the discarded has a certain beauty.
There is some good in all things, if we choose to see it. :)

  1. If nothing else, the discards decompose and create great food for other plants. I read a meditation by a priest/gardener recently who said she hated to throw perfectly good plant divisions into the compost pile (when she couldn’t find someone who wanted them) until she realized that the compost they made was as valuable as the plants. Nothing is lost, eh?

  2. When I deadhead the daylilies at the end of the day, I can’t think of a prettier sight as they lay on the compost pile. You wouldn’t think that would be a pretty picture, flowers on the compost, but all the colors together make a nice image.

  3. your pictures are fantastic! i’m glad you stopped by to spot my pun… i couldn’t believe my luck when i picked up that cup. my (adopted) trash is very photogenic but my compost heap is not nearly as beautiful as yours.

  4. What a unique idea, Nancy. And they really do look pretty. I wonder what would happen if you put water in that bowl (not the yellow leaves but the buds and blossoms.
