Wilting Petals & Watercolor {Practical Mondays #52}


These are simple flowers that I had bought for my neighbour on her birthday, a dear old lady, but they never got sent! Blame it on my dentist’s impromptu decision to pull out my molar and leave me in horrendous pain in spite of the painkillers & anaesthetics! 

Not just that I couldn’t bare to take an elevator to go three floors up, I even scraped the outer rear view mirror while pulling the car out of the hospital parking and had to cancel all my plans for the next day! 

Although I was eventually more than relieved to have the tooth gone, I felt sad for the wilting flowers that didn’t serve there purpose. Hence this project! 

Quite simple, I’m sure some really creative kids out there could do much, much better!
