We are already in May the month of flowers they told us when we were little and we took flowers to school,
You ran with the bouquet bigger than you and excited.
Your parents made a great effort for that bouquet of white calla lilies that we put on the virgin.
But today I share something different with you.
The gardenia is a white flower, full of petals and a delicious aroma.
Even the famous singer Carlos Gardel took them out a song many years ago.
"Two gardenias for you
With them I mean
I love you, I adore you, my life ”
A plant with delicate, almost white flowers.
The fleshy leaves are dark and shiny green.
But to them, the spring rain does not suit them, their immaculate white flowers are damaged by the drops of water, their tips begin to take on an ocher tone and wilt.
As the flower is not in its full beauty, you will say that it does not deserve photography, but for me they have a special beauty, the contrast of its texture and the increasingly intense color.
So I can't stop photographing them.
In its decline.
Damaged by the weather.
Crumpled and colorful.
Full of old age beauty.
And when they finally fall to the ground, they carpet the grass and give life to another beauty, this silent and almost unimportant one that we removed the petals and always came out yes.
The delicate and silent daisy, with its head in the sun and its roots in the withered leaves of the gardenia already brown and degraded by the passage of time.
