The weather has been wet all day again, as the forecast promised. Lisa Gordon commented on yesterday's post that she likes to buy and photograph flowers when it's wet, and I think that's an excellent idea. I've not had the opportunity to go into town to get any flowers yet. In the meantime, I thought I'd photograph the embroidered flowers on my favourite cardigan.
I only bought this cardigan a few months ago, and I was wearing it on the day Iain told me he was leaving. So I now think of it as my 'new life cardigan'. The black represents my mourning over the loss of our marriage, and the rosebuds signify the hope of one day being able to 'bloom anew' (as Melissa put it in her haiku).
