Old Time is still a-flying;
And this same flower that smiles today
Tomorrow will be dying." ~ Robert Herrick.
I heard that poem years ago and it really touched me. I'm well aware of how fast time flies.
I figured that poem would be appropriate to go along with this photo. I bought those flowers thinking I would immediately take some shots. But one thing led to another and I didn't get around to photographing the roses until they were looking a little sad. Somehow, we always think we have all the time in the world to do this or that... we don't. The clock is always ticking.
