What could be more evanescent than cut flowers? Once cut, they only last for a few days, but those few days immeasurably improve the lives of those who see them. My best girlfriend gave me pretty flowers for my birthday last month, and we put them in a vase on the kitchen table. Remarkably, they lasted nearly two weeks!
Aren’t they gorgeous? I was sitting at the table when it occurred to me that they would look great against the plain white wall, so I knelt down to take the second photo from below the rim of the table. Now, I can look at them any time, and the evanescent flowers can last a very long time.
