A life in one day

Nothing looks so delicate as the flowers of the rock rose, cistus, which rambles wild everywhere in pink and white. There is a yellow form too, but it doesn’t grow here. pink and white rock rose 16-4-13So bright and fresh in the morning, the flowers last one day. At dusk their petals fall to the floor their colour faded. The petals are crumpled and creased, as thin as tissue paper and almost transparent. The stamens are yellow and sit on a central yellow disc. white rock rose 16-4-13Definitely a wildflower which looks best growing in the wild, and not in a vase – all that is left the next morning is a vase full of stems and a dusting of petals on the shelf. white rock rose2 16-4-135 to remember
