Old? by huvesaker

Old?

One of the roses from my birthday that I am drying. I love the colours of this rose, even when dried. I have been having a bit of a mini 50 year old crisis the past couple of days...nothing serious, but I think I just realised that I am not 30 any more...mwah ha ha. Have been looking for "things" to do...a mini adventure or learn a new thing...not sure yet, watch this space.

Thought of the day:
Just because something is old doesn't mean it loses it's attraction.
30 I didn't like, but 40 and 50 were ok!

@anniesue only one age I didn't like and that was when I was 20...I didn't not want to be a teen anymore...now I NEVER want to be a teen again...after that I have enjoyed every single birthday. I LOVE getting older

Once the first shock has passed you will be fine....the happies if my years have been after 50 & believe me you are but a young chick! Stunning old rose, love the background & simple lines!

@happypat hahaha think that is what it is...I have never thought of myself as the age I am...and everyone at work are making fun of me (in a fun way) because I am 50....thanks for calling me a young chick...off to find the lego...

I love the way roses dry. I often have some in the lounge for a month and don't add any water.
As for age.....at 50 I still felt 35 πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ but now my son is 35, hee, hee, hee....63 on Saturday but still laughing and grateful. Just enjoy every day! πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’›

great colours and sentiments - I didn't mind being 50 either.

Very nice

It's beautiful! I'm rolling up on 50 in a few years. I don't want to rush time, but I'm not afraid of it either. I used to dread the 40's, but it's been pretty awesome so far! Happy Birthday!

Be reassured! This rose is aging beautifully- nothing like that flimsy one the Beast had in the movie:-)

Great clarity!

Old? Distinguished and beautiful :)

I hope you quotation doesn't apply to humans! But I have to agree a rose keeps its colours even if it is slightly withered!

I wish i was still 50! but since I started walking more and eating much less sugar I feel better than ever. Just think, no matter how old you get I'll always be older :) Cant wait to see what you get up to

Another good thought of the day! Beautiful shot too. FAV! Flowers that are past their best is one of my favourite photo subjects. I have a bunch desiccating in the conservatory and waiting for me and my camera right now! But they need to wait a little longer.

PS You are a mere young thing of 50, right? HA! I am just a few days short of being one and a half times older than you! More gains than losses I'd say.

50 is the new 35, so no worries! That a beautiful rose.
