Blur of Red and White (Flower of the Day)

I took this photograph thinking of my oldest sister, gone now almost thirty years. Red and white were her favourite colours, and we decorated her casket with large flowing bouquets.  I was disappointed by the blur, but then decided that the blur is fitting – it is how she resides in my memory – the sharp edges of her now softened by the passing years.

So, my flower of the day is dedicated to you, JoJo.  Red for the fire that defined you, white for the freshness of your spirit.
